Summary

This chapter presented a reference configuration that enables high availability and serviceability. Used in conjunction with the file system and hardware suggestions outlined in Chapter 1, and the volume manager setups described in Chapter 5 and Chapter 7, this reference configuration forms the foundation for a simple, consistent, resilient, and recoverable boot disk solution. Variations of the configuration explained the design of the reference configuration, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of different modifications to the configuration. At the very least, this chapter provided an understanding of the importance of optimizing boot disk availability and serviceability.
