SA Multipath compatibility with SA6400 and MSA500

Hi all,

Is the Smart Array Multipath Software 2.0 supported for use with Smart Array 6400 controllers attached to a Modular Storage Array 500? If not, is there any such support planned in the future, or is there another way to get multipath functionality with an MSA500?

Thanks,

Hi,

Here are a couple of options.
Modular Smart Array 500 High Availability Kit (includes MSA500 controller, 4-port IO Module, Smart Array Multipath Software and 2 SA-532 Adapters)
351281-B21

Or

4-Port Shared Storage Module with Smart Array Multipath Software
292944-B21

I hope this helps.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the info, but we have already purchased SA-6400 adapters. I don't think multipath was being considered when the purchase was made, but I'm exploring the options now. I tried installing the SA Multipath Software 2.0, and it basically did nothing, which I'm assuming is because it didn't see any compatible adapters. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Hi Steve

Did you tried SA6400 with Multipath on MSA500.Does it worked or not.

Hi,

No, it didn't. We ended up having to use the SA-532 adapters.
