Re: MSA-1000

Which model HBA do you have?

Multipath support could very possibly be built into the hba driver. I know qlogic for sure has multipath support.

Re: MSA-1000

why not unplug the FC cable from sdb and see if the other one comes active. If it does you already have failover, you seem to have multipath since the LUN is seen but inactive! Unless by "both LUN" you actually mean two seperate LUNs, as configured on the MSA. Also have you configured a connection to the second WWPN on the MSA, no connection, no redundant path.
