Does MSA2012fc support Windows 2003 Cluser on rx2660?

Hi all,

I have 2 rx2660 installed windows 2003, each rx2660 have two fc HBAs, these servers access msa2012fc thru an fc switch. These two servers can read/write msa2012fc normally. But I can not complete configuration of windows cluster, it can not pass the phase of Quorum configuration. I want to know whether mas2012fc support windows cluster on rx2660 which runs windows 2003?

TIA.

Hi,
In the HP Windows cluster configuration for itanium I don't see the msa2012.

But on the quickspecs of the MSA2000fc, I read
"Qualified and certified for Windows and Linux clustering" but what cluster is supported.

OS support
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 IA32 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter)
Microsoft Windows 2003 and 2003 R2

Red Hat Linux 4 & 5 (32/64)
SuSE SLES 9 & 10 (32/64)
VMware ESX 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.5
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 Hyper-V
Integrated Citrix XenServer HP Enterprise. Citrix Xen Enterprise 4.1.0-7846 (AMD64, EMT64)

Thanks for your reply.

--Qualified and certified for Windows and Linux clustering
maybe means windows 32bit edition on HP Proliant Servers

I also found:
Server Compatibility Supports most HP ProLiant servers including

*
HP ProLiant DL, ML
*
HP ProLiant c-Class Blade Servers

no IA system listed here.

Hi,
For now, I feel that this bay is not supported on the IA. But it does not mean it never been one day.

Hi,

Definitively not on win2003, if you look at the newer firmware
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=3687115&prodNameId=3687119&swEnvOID=1060&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=co-65944-1
If you have redhat or suse you could it seems

So maybe you have to wait until a new firmware release J200P24-X
