EVA 6400 VDISK's balancing


All the VDISKS on our 6400 are assigned to to controller B, is there a way to re assign some of the VDISKs to the other controller

Re: EVA 6400 VDISK's balancing

Yes, you can change the 'preferred path' on a virtual disk's tab, but depending on the attached operating system and it's multipath behaviour it is possible that the EVA moves the ownership back after a hour or so.

In that case you must assist by telling the operating system's multipath component to play nice with the EVA.
