multipathing on Windows 2008 R2

Hello,

I installed Windows 2008 server R2 with latest MPIO driver for EVA4400. On Windows 2003 I am used to "see" only one drive after installing MPIO driver. However, here is something different. Since this is first install on this OS, I would like to consult with you is this Ok or something else needs to be done ?

In addition of this, after trying to get other drives online, I get this error attached ...

imho, sounds like the eva needs firmware update or the controllers may need a power cycle, did you run into any issues during creation of drives via Command view, can you provide a pic of what command view shows?

Firmware is already update to latest version. One question: Is Microsoft MPIO required on this platform W2008 R2 to be installed in addition to HP MPIO ?

Not great on 2008 but I seem to remember that the MPIO driver is generic and integral with the OS but you have to enable it from the control panel.

Are you trying to ue the 2003 MPIO driver? If so I'm not sure that this will work.
