Cluster of two DL360G3

My customer wants to buy a cluster of two DL360G3 and connect it to the MSA500. After the long time of searching in www.hp.com I assembly following configuration:
Servers:
1. HP Proliant DL360G3 Xeon-3.2GHz/1MB 2GB ECC /2 HPRPS Bundle (345102-421) - 2.
2. Xeon-3.2GHz/1MB Processor Upgrade Kit for DL360 G3 (345103-B21) - 2
3. Smart Array 532 RAID Controller (2 x Ultra3)(225338-B21) - 2
4. 18GB 15K U320 SCSI Universal Hard Drive (1") (286775-B22) - 4
5. 2GB Reg PC2100 (2x1GB) DIMM (300680-B21) - 2
Storage:
1. 64MB Battery Backed Write Cache (BBWC) Enabler for SA5i (255514-B21) - 2
2. Smart Array Cluster Enclosure (201724-B21) - 1
3. Smart Array 5300 Series Option -128MB Cache Upgrade Kit (153506-B21) - 2
4. Smart Array Cluster Redundant Contoller (218252-B21) - 1
5. 72GB 10K U320 SCSI Universal Hard Drive (1") (286714-B22) - 6.
Maybe, I forgot something in this configuration?
And one more question.
My supplier has no on his stock some parts. They are 255514-B21, 153506-B21, 218252-B21. Can the cluster works (or just start) without these parts? These parts will be added as soon as they arrive to my stock.

1. Crossover Cable?


Ordering .. HP Modular Smart Array 500 Starter Kit (includes MSA 500 and 2 SA-532 Adapters) 351504-B21 ... gives you the MSA500 with 2 SA532 HBA's. You do not need the BBWC, Cache Upgrade Kit nor the redundant controller to actually build the cluster and they can be added on later if need be.


Otherwise, it looks like you have the correct parts.

Re: Cluster of two DL360G3

Probably because the customer wants Dl360's, but otherwise... a good question.

Ivan: Is there any reason why your customer wants DL360's vs. DL380's? (besides the norm.. cost, space, etc)

Re: Cluster of two DL360G3

Thanx for all of your answers. Firstly I offer to my customer exactly cluster of DL380's, but he wants just DL360. I know that packaged cluster is more correct decision, but I must to sell exactly this servers with this MSA.
About a croosover cable. Here (http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11956_div/11956_div.html) is an information that "... two VHDCI SCSI cables and a crossover Ethernet cable for clustering..." are included...
