MSA1000 MPIO

Hello,

 

I have a MSA1000 connected to a two StorageWorks 2/8 FC Switch. There are also 7 HP DL 380G4 servers connected to the FC switches with 2 FC cards everyone.

 

One of the servers has 2K8R2 but has not installed HP DSM Manager nor MPIO.

 

It has one local unit ( C:  )  as well as one unit ( D: ) mapped from a LUN of MSA1000. Both units have data.

 

As it has two FC cards and is already connected to the FC Switch, I've installed HP DSM Manager as well as MPIO from Windows.

 

Well, just after restarting, mapped LUn from MSA is seeing as a new unit, not as the unit that was already.

 

Why is seeing as a new unit? Have I lost the information?

 

MPIO sees the paths to the LUN correctly.

 

What have I done wrong?

 

Thanks,
