Show current paths - Windows 2003

Hi,

How can I find out what's the current path being used on a Windows 2003 server? The server has 2 HBA cards and every card sees one target from the storage-array so basically I have two targets for every LUN.

I installed MPIO (from HP site ...four our XP storage-array) and I no longer see duplicate disks on disk-management. I also installed SanSurfer and I see the correct paths but still can't figure out the active paths. When I right-click a LUN (in SanSurfer) I have the option for "Current Path" grayed out.

Is there any native command in Windows (or any command-line tool that comes with MPIO) that will show that to me?

Thanks,
Jorge

Did you install the DSM manager from HP as well?

There should be a MMC Plugin for MPIO...

It should show you pathing info and allow you to set load balance options.
