Windows 2012 R2 MPIO HP P2000 G3 with HP MSA 2040 SAN

Whats the recommended MPIO settings for Windows 2012 R2 these days, previously it was Round Robin now I've seen "Least Queue" mentioned?

 

Basically installed a brand new SAN unit (HP MSA 2040 SAN), this is in addition to  HP P2000 G3 that we had.

 

 

Several servers have mount points for drives which exists on both SAN units. 

 

Another question, the new HP MSA 2040 SAN has 6 x 15K drives at the moment,  I'm assuming this would'nt max out the FC of 8GB ?   

 

My brocade 300 switch isnt showing any ports over 1GB at the moment.

Hi

MPIO round robin is default for windows and recomended for most storage

as for 8GB it is usualy quit enough most systems don't get close to this

limit
