MPIO DSM Windows 2003 64Bit Double Volumes appearing

We have a server with Powerpath zoned to a CX SAN. Need to migrate to a EVA 6400.

Installed HP MPIO DSM , zoned and presented 3 600GB disks.

Issue is we see double the amount of disk at the os end.

Any ideas how to get DSM to work? Hoping its not a Powerpath issue. Also installed PowerPath with HP support.

Hi Chris,

take a look here:

make sure you installed the first TWO downloads:
- HP MPIO DSM (Device Specific Module) Manager for Full Featured DSMs
- HP MPIO Full Featured DSM for EVA4x00/6x00/8x00 families of Disk Arrays

Afterwards you will find the MPIO management console in you startmenu (see attachment)

Here you can define your desired path policy.
