Disk Presentation Problem

Hello San Guru's

I have a small problem that i cant figure out.

I have an EVA environment and i have created a new host on it and assigned it a 300GB Vdisk. As far as i can see all looks very similar to every other setup on the EVA.

The problem is that after zoning the c class blade the disk appears as 2 logical drives and not 1 ???

I did have redundancy built into this model but then there appeared to be 4 drives ?? can someone help.

Regards Marcus.

Hi Marcus,

It sounds like you need to install some multipathing software on your OS.

Go to http://www.hp.com/go/support and search for downloads for MPIO. Hopefully that should sort you out.

If not, let us know what operating system you're using...

Cheers,

Rob

Be carefull the MPIO version depends on

* your OS
