Introduction
Introduction
The following pages contain a cursory set of procedures for setting up the clustering
components of HP NetServers with the HP NetRAID-4M disk controller running Microsoft
Windows 2000 Advanced Server operating system. Steps include installing the HP NetRAID4M controller and cabling it to the HP RS/12 Shared Storage enclosure, installing the HP
D5013A network interface card for the intra-cluster network connection, installing Microsoft
and HP cluster software, and configuring shared disk storage.
For NetServer platform-specific descriptions of supported cluster configurations of Microsoft
Cluster Server and the HP NetRAID-4M, refer to the configuration guides on the hp netserver
Microsoft clusters web site. For more comprehensive information about installing, using and
configuring disk arrays with the HP NetRAID-4M controller and the FAST (Flexible Array
Storage Tool) utility, refer to the NetRAID series of accessory manuals available on the hp
netserver information library web site.
For more information about Microsoft Clustering technology, refer to the installation guides,
support articles and technical papers on the Microsoft web site at www.microsoft.com, as well
as Windows on-line help.
Intended Audience
This guide is for the person who installs, administers, and troubleshoots the Microsoft Cluster
Server who needs cluster installation details specific to the HP NetRAID-4M controller.
Hewlett-Packard assumes this person is qualified to service computer equipment and trained to
recognize hazards in products with hazardous energy levels.
NOTE
Hewlett-Packard only supports and recommends installation of clustered HP
NetServer systems using Microsoft Cluster Server software by a Microsoft or
HP Cluster Certified Installer.

HP NetRAID-4M Cluster Services Installation Guide
Overview
1 Overview
1.1 Software and Networking Requirements
• Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server with the latest service pack installed on each
server
• Administrator user login name and password for each node, and a domain account for the
cluster service
• DNS, and computer, domain and cluster NetBIOS names
• TCP/IP, and static IP addresses for each network adapter, cluster service and IP resource
• HP NetServer Navigator CD, version L.20.00 or later, along with 8 floppy disks if driver
diskettes are the method used as outlined in this guide, rather than browsing the CD, for
driver and utility installation
1.2 Hardware Requirements
• Two HP NetServers identically configured with processors, BIOS, memory, LAN
adapter(s), disk drives, power supplies and cables in compliance with the corresponding
HP Cluster Configuration Guide
• Two HP NetRAID-4M controllers (P9161A or D9351A) with termination and battery
enable jumpers installed
• Two D5013B LAN adapter cards and a crossover cable or equivalent dedicated LAN
connection to create the intra-cluster private network (embedded network interfaces can
be used and are supported in platforms where they exist)
• RS/12 SCSI Storage enclosures (D5989C) containing two SCSI controller cards
(D6025C), SCSI and power cables and HP disk drives
1.3 Installation Sequence – Important Note
The steps that follow serve as an example of one way to build a Microsoft two-node cluster
with the HP NetServer, Rack Storage/12 and NetRAID-4M. Some of the steps may be done in
a different sequence if preferred by the experienced installer.
NOTE
In systems using shared disk controllers other than the HP NetRAID-4M, when
multiple nodes simultaneously access the same disk drives before Microsoft
cluster services are installed, unpredictable drive configuration corruption can
result. Presence of the cluster service software is necessary to protect the shared
storage, enabling safely managed access by more than one server at a time.
When the HP NetRAID-4M is used to connect shared storage, as long as the
Clustering BIOS setting is enabled on each channel connected to drives in the
shared storage enclosure, simultaneous access to the storage by the operating
system on multiple nodes is safely managed.

Overview
1.4 Alternative Installation Sequence
NOTE
For the purpose of illustration, the two server nodes depicted in this guide are
referred to as Server A, or node A, the first node to establish the cluster, and
Server B, or node B, the second node to join the same cluster. The ultimate
assignments of cluster resources are not prescribed in this document. Those design
considerations are at the discretion of the cluster planner.
This guide was written in a sequence which directs each task in each subchapter be done first on
Server A, then on Server B, before proceeding to the next topic, to ensure that the same actions are
performed on both nodes in an identical fashion. Alternatively, if the installer wishes to complete
as many steps as possible first on Server A before Server B, then the following sequence may be
used; however, the installer must jump around in this document in order to do so.

7. Leave the options Attached and Re-initialize disk selected.
NOTE
The Attached check box allows you to specify whether or not the diskset is
attached immediately after it is created (thereby making container information on
the member disks accessible to the controller).
Re-initialize disks check box allows you to specify whether existing container
information is to be removed from the disks being used to create the diskset
Spare set creates a diskset of hot spares that can later be assigned as global or
dedicated hot spares to NetRAID-4M containers (logical drives).
8. Click OK, then click the Close button to complete the drive selections.
Create Containers
9. Select the Container (Logical Drv) menu and click on the Creation Wizard option.
10. From the Diskset drop list, select the newly created diskset (e.g.: QuorumDiskSet).
11. To create a RAID-5 set for the quorum drive, from the Type to create pulldown menu
select RAID-5 set.
NOTE
Please refer to the HP NetServer Cluster Configuration Guide for a complete
listing of supported configurations.
12. Click the Force in Dest check boxes.
NOTE
All of the originally selected non-member disks are considered for inclusion in the
destination container; but, only those disks with an X in the right-hand In Dest
column are actually included in the destination container. Disks whose Force in
Dest check boxes are checked are forced to be included in the container.
Force in Dest is particularly useful when reconfiguring containers when, for
example, a rebuild to a hot spare has occurred and the administrator wishes to
move the array back to the original drive positions after the bad drive has been
replaced.
Force channel optimization when checked, attempts to place disks in the
container on alternating physical SCSI channels, to maximize performance.
13. In the Size options area, select Use all of … and then click Create, then OK.
14. Read the Write Cache message:
27
HP NetRAID-4M Cluster Services Installation Guide
Cluster Software Components and Quorum
This container’s write cache will be set to “Enable when protected”. However, because the
container resides on a clustered controller’s shared channel the write cache will not be
enabled.
Click OK.
15. At the Configure Spares screen click Continue. Later, a spare set can be created, if
desired, and spares can be assigned to this container, but at this step, there are no drives
available to select.
NOTE
For information about assigning spare disks in a cluster, refer to the HP NetRAID
4M FAST Users Guide downloadable from the hp information library web site.
16. Read the About Container Creation screen, then click OK.
17. From the View menu, or by the icon, select the Container (Logical Drv) View option.
18. Verify that the quorum container is initializing in the Container View screen.
NOTE
It is generally a good practice to wait for the initialization process to complete
before continuing. The process will continue in the background after exiting
FAST, as long as the operating system and services remain up, until 100% of the
container is initialized.
19. Exit the HP NetRAID-4M FAST utility.

29
HP NetRAID-4M Cluster Services Installation Guide
NOTE
Cluster Software Components and Quorum
When formatting partitions for a container using the Disk Administrator or Disk
Management utility, Quick Format is an option. The NetRAID-4M controller’s
disk verify (with badblock repair) and container consistency check operations,
which run in the background, will find (and repair) any bad blocks not detected
during the quick format operation. (When the controller is busy, formatting
partitions for a container can take a long time.)
28. Click Next.
29. Click Finish to complete the process and when the partition reports Healthy close the
Computer Management window.
CAUTION
Do not shutdown or restart the server before completing the next step.
Although Windows sees the container as a disk now, the NetRAID-4M will
not allow access to the disk after a reboot, and it will not appear in the Disk
Management window, unless a NetRAID-4M Diskset resource is associated
with it.
3.5 Create Shared Quorum Cluster Resource
NOTE
After you create a container, and partition it as a Windows disk, you must create a
corresponding NetRAID-4M Diskset resource (using the MSCS Cluster
Administrator utility) that maps to it. Then, that disk is capable of failing over
according to the policies you establish for the cluster. For more information on
working with NetRAID-4M Diskset resources, refer to the HP NetRAID 4M
