Note: This diagram depicts a two-node cluster. With Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise
Edition, HP supports up to eight (8) nodes in a ProLiant Cluster F200 for MSA1000.
Introduction
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition is an extension of the Microsoft Windows 2000
operating system environment developed to enhance the customer experience and to improve the
overall usability and deployment.
General cluster improvements for Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition include:
•
Larger cluster sizes – Enterprise Edition now supports up to 8 nodes.
•
Enhanced cluster installation wizard – built-in validation and verification function to help
ensure base components are ready to be clustered.
•
Installation – cluster binaries are automatically copied during the operating system
installation.
•
Multi-node addition – multiple nodes can be added in a single operation instead of one by
one.
•
Active Directory integration – tighter integration including a “virtual” computer object,
Kerberos authentication, and a default location for services to publish service control points.
Users can access the virtual server just like any other Windows server.

Installing Node 1 Operating System
…
Power on the shared storage. After powering on, wait until the storage system startup complete message appears on the
display. It may take up to two minutes for the storage system to completely power up.
…
Power on and boot Node 1 with the SmartStart CD in the CD-ROM drive.
…
Configure the cluster node using the SmartStart CD. Select Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition as the
operating system and follow the SmartStart on-screen instructions.
After the OS installation is complete, SmartStart will automatically install the latest HP support software.
…
Each cluster node requires at least two network adapters; one to connect to a public network and one to connect to a
private network.
For the public network connection: If the network adapter can transmit at multiple speeds, then manually specify a speed
and duplex mode. The speed for the network adapter should be hard set (manually set) to be the same on all nodes
according to the card manufacturer's specification.
Best Practice: To provide a maximum level of redundancy, use NIC Teaming capabilities for selected HP network
products to provide a redundant public network connection. Please note, however, that NIC Teaming is unsupported for
the private network connection.
…

details.
Remove the HP StorageWorks Secure Path for Windows Workgroup Edition CD from the CD-ROM drive.
Reboot the node when prompted.
…
Install Secure Path Manager (SPM) on a monitor node. To use Secure Path, install SPM on a machine designated as a
monitor node and connected to the same domain as the cluster.
Note: If desired, a Cluster node may also be the Monitor node.
…
Shutdown Node 1 when the installation is complete.

Configuring the Shared Storage
The following table provides a checklist of the steps necessary to configure the MSA1000 storage.
Place a checkmark (3) in the box after completing each step.
3
Configuring the Shared Storage
…
Power on Node 1 and log into the domain.
…
From the desktop of Node 1, select Start Æ Programs Æ Compaq/HP System Tools Æ hp Array
Configuration Utility Æ hp Array Configuration Utility.
Note: The Internet Connection Wizard pop-up screen may appear. Internet Explorer must be configured appropriately in
order to use the HP Array Configuration Utility. Also, be sure to read the security alert pop-up screen. The Internet
Explorer security level may need to be modified in order to use ACU.
…
Select the MSA1000 controller to configure the shared storage hard drives. Refer to the user guide for the MSA1000
storage system for additional details.
If sharing an MSA1000 between multiple clusters, Selective Storage Presentation (SSP) is required for configuration.
Refer to the ACU documentation for information on using SSP.
…
Configure the shared storage drives.
IMPORTANT: Create a logical drive using ACU on one of the MSA1000 arrays with at least 510MB of space.
Microsoft recommends at least 500MB for the cluster Quorum drive. The extra space for the logical drive size specified
in ACU is to account for internal disk size calculations used by ACU. Specifying 510MB will ensure that this size of this
disk will be at least 500MB of formatted drive space for use as the Quorum drive. Refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base
Article – 280345 or the help documentation on the cluster node for more information on cluster disk sizes.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;280345
…
After the shared storage drives are configured, select Start Æ Programs Æ Administrative Tools Æ Computer
Management. Then select Disk Management to create volumes out of the logical drives.
Important: DO NOT upgrade the logical drives from Basic to Dynamic. Microsoft Cluster Services does not support
dynamic disks.
