Installation order for NTS/E MSCS SQL7 and Compaq Redundancy manager

Hi I am planning to install NT4 Server enterprise edition with MSCS and SQL7 server into DL580 HA/F200 cluster.

environment info:
Clustered Nodes: DL580 - 1st generation
Disk Array: RA4100
HBA: 64bit/64Mhz FC HBA x 2 for each node

While checking documentation from MS and HP,
I found some contradiction.

HP document state that Compaq Redundancy manager is required to be installed prior to MSCS installation, and also it require SP4 in order to Compaq Redundancy manager to function.

MS KB 219264 state that I need to install MSCS with NT4 SP3 and MS SQL7.0 first, then upgrade to NT4 SP4.

I am kind a confused with this. Please guide me how should I proceed. Is it OK to install Compaq Redundancy manager at later stage?

P.S. I am planning to use SmartStart 5.50 to initate OS installation.

Re: Installation order for NTS/E MSCS SQL7 and Compaq Redundancy manager

The correct order should be:

1. NT
2. NT SP3
3. Redundancy Manager
4. MSCS
5. SQL
6. NT SP4
7. Any SQL SPs that you need

Thanks,
