hi,
you can connect the 2 ports of the msa to the switch, the 2 servers to the switch, and you need to install mpio in the server for multipath, (2 ways to the msa).

other option: you are a simple controler msa, a single switch and single port HBA ... if you connect a single port of the msa to the switch you have a single configuration and not need to install mpio.

I recomended to connect both ports on the msa and install mpio.

in a simple configuration as it it's not very important but I recomended to configure the zonning in the switch.

regards.
