(see Version History at the end of this document)
Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LXr 8000 configurations with HP Rack Storage/12s
and /8s and Microsoft Cluster Server. These configurations minimize single points of failure (SPOF),
provide maximum availability, and have been certified by Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. 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.

    Version History 30 March 2000 Corrected references to software versions “or later”. 16 November 1999 Added a 400/450 MHz cluster configuration that uses the Rack Storage/12 Model D5989B and revised cabling drawings for clarity. 28 September 1999 Added 500 and 550 MHz CPUs. Note that the BIOS version, Navigator version, and Rack Storage/12 and its controller's model numbers vary with the CPU speed (400/450 versus 500/550 MHz).
