1. Configuring the Clusters Hardware

1.1 Minimal Hardware list / System Requirements

    For a two node cluster the following would be a minimum recommended hardware list. Check the RAC/HP certification matrix for RAC updates on currently supported hardware/software.

1.1.1 Hardware

    All hardware is provided by HP. A bridge or hub is mandatory when using ethernet for the interconnect. HP does not support a straight through ethernet connection for a private ethernet interconnect.

? For HP servers, third-party storage products, Cluster interconnects,

    Public networks, Switch options, Memory, Swap

    & CPU requirements consult the operating system or hardware vendor and see the RAC/HP certification matrix.

    ? Private network connection can be any of the following (see the RAC/HP certification matrix):


    RS232 Serial

    Ethernet or FDDI
