BL460c G1 & QMH2462 4GB FC not recognizing MPIO config

I am running a Server 2008 R2 cluster of BL460C G1 blades in a C7000 enclosure.

After installing the latest SANSurfer v5.0.1 build 66, my MPIO devices designed to work with the default Microsoft SAN drivers have dissappeared.

This is a concern as in the past, I have had to use the SANsurfer manager to prevent link failures.

Anyone else had a similar problem / resolution?

Which storage array are we talking about?

Did you install the proper MPIO dsm for the Storage Array?

Windows 2008 R2 has MPIO framework built into it, but it knows nothing about your storage. It needs a dsm to identify your storage devices.

It is a SyneRAID6.

Sometimes it works, with the storage appearing as expected in the cluster shared storage folder, and sometimes they dont.

That inconsistency is troublesome.
