Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LP1000r configurations using the HP Rack Storage/12FC
and Microsoft Cluster Server. These configurations minimize single points of failure (SPOF, SPOFless
provide extended availability. The specific configuration certified and supported by both Hewlett-Packard and
Microsoft is defined, as are other guidelines to assist you in configuring your clustered NetServers. This guide
is prescriptive; it describes the configurations supported by HP. Any deviance to these configurations can result
in an inoperative cluster or an operating cluster with degraded performance, hidden SPOFs, etc., and therefore
will not be supported by HP.
