Windows server connecting to EVA-5000 and EVA-8000

Currently our environment consists of many windows servers (2000 and 2003) connecting to several EVA-5000s. We are acquiring new EVA-8000s and we will need to serve up storage from these new EVAs to the existing severs.

My questions are:

• Can I connect a windows host simultaneously to a 5000 and 8000?
• Can Secure Path and MPIO Full coexist?
• Does HP have a document(s) for connecting windows hosts to these different form factors.

Thanks,
QV

Thanks for the reply. What document specifically am I looking for that I can read up on concerning connecting a host to an EVA-5000 and EVA-8000 simultaneously?

Thanks,

Yes but take care in version
Ex:
