Re: Multipath software?

The multipath software depends upon the version of VCS you are running on the EVA.

If you are running VCS 3.x or earlier, then you have an Active/passive configuration and need the MPIO basic DSM...

If you have VCS 4.x, then you need the MPIO Full Featured DSM...

Get the Full Featured Manager as well (if you have VCS 4.x)...

You will also need drivers for your HBA's... which you should have enough information already to find them If not, post the make/model you are using.

You should be able to find out that version of VCS is running on the EVA from Command View, or from the OCP on the front of the EVA Controllers.
