MSA2000fc showing volume twice in windows disk managment

Hi, I am deploying my first MSA2000 onto my existing SAN to add more disk to my 2 node W2003 windows cluster.

It is quite different to the MSA1500 family and MSA 1000 that I have deployed in the past and this is where I am so far.

I changed the port type to point-point on the MSA 200 and they now show as F ports on the SAN switches and I have zones apropriately.

I setup the Host port names from the WWN on the MSA and created my VDisk and Volumes and mapped acordingly.

The issue I now have is with the HP MPIO that I upgraded to the MSA 2000 version (W2003) does nto apear to be functioning correctly as I see each volume twice, this makes sense due to multiple paths but I thought the MPIO would take care of this as it has on previous MSA deploys ??.........

Also I adds the new disks in windows as Disk 1 adn disk 0, not as disk 11 as it should as I already have 10 disks presented to the cluster ?

Any Help/advice greatly apreciated!

The MPIO driver, do take care of that.

Re-check if you are using the correct MPIO.

I don't know, what the difference is.

But the link I posted was the only MPIO link under P2000 / Windows 2003.

Greate :)

The numbering. I'm not 100% clear on this.
Do the other disks use the same HBA?
Or are they on another controller?
