Red Hat AS 4 with EVA

I have Itanium rx2620 with A6826A (qlogic) HBA. I install RH AS 4 on it.
Then I install driver kit from HP site.
After that I connect my server to EVA storage.
I see 8 connections (dual channel card + 2 controllers). I think that my linux still use native qlogic driver.
I try too use HP installation guide for driver kit (Notes on Upgrading Kernels and Changing Driver Parameters), but I think that is for older version of Red Hat Linux, becuse I don't have some files they mentioned in guide.
I wan't to see only one connection.
Mybe someone have some new driver kit installation guide ?
I have one question more. What is goal of SANsurfer program.

Do you have the following versions?

Driver 8.00.02; BIOS: 1.45 or better
Driver 8.00.02p11; BIOS: 1.45

You will find an installation guide here

Qlogic SANsurfer is the FC HBA Manager for centralized management and remote control of distributed HBAs

I love storage

You need to run the HP driver's "set_parm" script to configure the multipath driver. See this prior thread for more info.
