MSA1500 Asym-Active/Active?

Does an MSA1500 do true active/active performance? Fibre channel switch port traffic shows traffic only on one path to the MSA. MSA1500 reports:
Supported Redundancy Mode: Active/Standby Asym-Active/Active
Current Redundancy Mode: Asym-Active/Active

I'd just like to know if something is misconfigured or if it's to be expected that the MSA can't actually load balance the traffic (i.e. SQST) like the EVA does.

Problem was with server settings, not the MSA. Traffic is on both paths now.
