seeing two disks when in active active mode

Hi there,

I am running a 2312fc in active active mode, the host is connected to one port in the top controller and one in the bottom controller, so it's plugged into a1 and a2 but the host can see the active disk and the redundant disks.

How do I get to see the active disk only and have the other controller in redundant mode ready to take over when the active controller fails?

You need to set up a 'multipath filter'.
How to do that depends on the operating system running on the host which you have kept a secret ;-)
