SecurePath or Autopath now is a free product?

I am getting contradicting information on the software that can support redundancy, load balancing, and monitoring functions on multiple HBA cards. It used to be called SecurePath or AutoPath.

I used to work on this software years ago. Now somebody told me that this software is now a part of Window OS. Can anybody please verify the information for me? If it is still a purchased software, could anybody please tell me approximately how much does it cost. We need it for budgeting purpose

Hi,

Secure path is a license product from HP earlier and now this is stopped.

For windows OS, MPIO will be used with HP Arrays.

MPIO is free and u can download from HP site.

MPIO is a Microsoft software and including as a part of OS from Windows 2008

You can download the HP MPIO for respective storage from below location

Hi Hanry,

I did another post about AutoPath / SecurePath. Check this link and maybe it will clarify the differences:

The link works now.

To install MPIO on Window 2008, would that require to reboot the server?

any online document I can check out? I know AutoPaht could do load-balancing, failover monitoring, and etc, so, I'd like to check out MPIO manual

Hi Hanry,

I don't think you can update any multipathing software online - too risky. That link you had is the one I would use to get the software, however.

Yes, you need to reboot after installing MPIO.
