Re: difference between active and passive mode in secure path

It depends on your controller for EVA

hsv1x0 (EVA3/5) : Active / Passive
hsv2x0 (EVA4/6/8) : Active / Active

It used to be as described above, however if your EVA uses VCS 4.* or above then you can go active active on the EVA3/5000 too.
A sobering thought: What if, right at this very moment, I am living up to my full potential?
