Hi,

MSA1000 supports
- HPUX11i
- rx server
- Serviceguard

But MSA1000 is only supported in a single controller, with a dedicated HPUX firmware.
So you have a single point of failure with one controller.

The best solution is to install two MSA1000 and keep the data synchronised with Mirror/UX

Hi,

Don't know if RAID controllers are supported in MC/SG.

I have more then one customer who runs MSA30 DB (Double bus) in an MC/ServiceGuard environment.

The disks are synchronised with Mirror/UX

The MSA30 SB, DB or MI don't have any hardware RAID capability - they are just disk drive enclosures (sometimes called JBODs).

For using with service guard,no need to have a RAID in disk arrays.Thing is that the disks should be accesible from all the nodes of the cluster.Whether with RAID or without RAID.
You may need to have multiple controllers in some disk arrays for connecting more hosts.
