P2000 SAN - HP Server/windows 2008 shows two Disk drive

Hi, I am new to the SAN, lost my SAN Admin...  I created a new volume and a new host.  I then did an explicity Vol map to the vol for my new host.  Now, my Server show two disks, which is the exact same size 1397.92 GB Unallocated (Disk 3 and Disk 4)…  They are both Offline, so they got created once I apply it from the SAN…  Does it suppose to show two disks ?

You are likely missing Multipath I/O support from the server.

 

First add the Multipath I/O feature, then you can install the appropriate DSM for the model MSA you have... Usually found on the Support Pack Disk.

 

Since it is a P2000, it is likely to be a MSA2 or MSA3,  What is the exact model MSA?

Just install and configure the multipath feature of windows 2008

MSA2000 family only use the Microsoft DSM.  After installing MS DSM, you may have to restart the server.
