Proper way to configure SecurePath (clients)


Proper way to configure SecurePath (clients)


We have Proliant DL380 or DL385 servers with two HBAs connected to MSA1000.

I usually just install SecurePath 4.0c Workgroup Edition and that's it. I do not add any clients. The server name where SecurePath is installed is automatically entered as a client upon installation.

Someone is telling me that in case of a Windows cluster, I should add both cluster node names as clients in the SecurePath configuration. I think they are wrong. They tell me that doing it my way the fail-over will not work properly. I think they are confusing HBA failover with cluster failover.

But I never had a formal education with SecurePath.

So am I doing it right? Or should I add both cluster node names?
