MAS1500 and VMWare --> "preferred path mode" on MSA1500

Occasional Advisor

MAS1500 and VMWare --> "preferred path mode" on MSA1500

MSA1500, acive/active, v7.00, ESX3.5U3

In VMWare it is advised to distribute the storage-pathes with the "preferred path"-option below "manage paths"...

What is the correct setting for the MSA1550 at ACU in "redundancy settings" and "preferred path mode" - automatic or manual?

When I change from automatic to manual, then I see the LUN-assignment exactly like the path settings in VMWare.
What is the difference between automatic and manual?

Thank you for your help
