EVA5000 FW upgrade to version 4.0

I have been told that moving from FW rev 3.x to rev. 4.0, the EVA5000 will change in behaviour from active/passive to active/active.

I'm not very familia with such type of status.
Can somebody shed some light on this?
What will change in my environment, if the setup of the EVA5000 changes from active/passive to active/active ?

Hi!

If you could provide more information about your environment we may be able to answer your question.

If you are running HP-UX, see this thread:

I believe this forum thread and the link will provide some valuable information for you:
