HP-UX can use No preference, or Path A/B Failover only.

I think its a whole new game with EVA 4/6/8K family as the controllers are now active=active, which means you can now use (apart from PVLINKs correctly) - DMP and other native multi-pating options.

For 11i V2 - since VxVM is even better and more native than in 11i v1, I will actually prefer VxVM for all includin gmy OS disks since the EVA 4/6/8K are natively supported in DMP...
