MSA70 dual domain with dual P800 controller (multipath)

Hi all
I'm trying to set up a DL385G5 configuration with dual P800 controllers (latest firmware 5.20) and a MSA70 (latest firmware 2.16)with dual ports HDD and dual I/O module.

We contacted HP and they said the dual-domain is working but only with one P800 controller using both ports due to some issue with the P800 windows driver in a multipath configuration.

Does anybody know what is this issue and when HP is going to have this problem solved ?

I wasn't able to find any MPIO software for the MSA70...does it available somewhere ?

So far dual-domain using only one P800 is working fine, but what about a failure in the P800 ?

Thanks in advance for any comment/help
Cheers

Hello JP,
Single P800 per dual domain MSA60/70 is the only supported configuration.

There is no MPIO software because the P800 handles the function.

Is HP working on allowing multi controllers for MSA70 in a dual domain

Hi ,
I'd like to know if there have been any update or improvement on this because we want to make the same configuration ( 2 P800 and dual domain MSA70 )
thanks
