There is no support yet for Netras T1 or X1 or Intel at the time for sun 
Cluster 3.0. It seems that Neither Veritas, nor Sun Cluster will ever 
have support for Netra X1's because they don't have a PCI slot to place 
an SCSI HBA for the shared storage. On a T1, there might more chances. 
It is now officially supported for SC 3.0, according to Sun docs.

Some other more cost-effective solutions have been suggested for simple 
failover service:


Integratus UHA:
Stonebeat ServerCluster: (Finnish humour ;-) ). Looks 
real nice.

Hardware (still abit expensive):

Cisco arrowpoint CSS-11150
