HPUX 11.31 and IBM DS5100

I checked the IBM website. It seems that only PVlink is supported. Here is my question, if 11.31 native multi-path doesn't support the array, what is the correct procedure to use just PVlink?
I assume I can just use multiple conventional device file with the one on prefered path as the primary device file. Any other configuration needs to be done?
Thanks.

Thank you for the information.

I checked the white paper. There is a setting to disable multi-pathing for Legacy DSF. I believe I should do that before I use PVlink...

Another setting is ADT on IBM side, It should be set to "enabled".

I will let you know once I have it tested.
Thanks,
Alex
