HP P4300 Installation

We got 2 P4300 starter kits. I have hooked them up to the network. I assigned an IP address to both Port1 and Port2 on each of the Nodes. When in the SAN/IQ software I only see one of the two IP address for each node is that correct? 

Thanks!!

Unless you are setting the nodes up for a specific scenerio, you should configure the NICs for ALB. Doing this, you'll only assign one IP address and the units will use both paths when using MPIO.

Yes that is correct, if you go to CMC > group > cluster > store systems > Networks and then the communication tab you will see you select 1 NIC to be the SANiQ port. Like was mentioned before you should bond the 2 NIC's together so that you have failover.
