You can have secure path or Qlogic multipath enabled driver.

If you have secure path installed, you can check the version with the spmgr command.

Hi lvan

thanks for you fast reply.
but

1. spmgr is HP-UX command, could be use on Redhat linux? I try, system said: command not found

2. I have installed the FCA2214 A6826A QLogic FC HBA, I just wanna make sure whether I install the secure path, if not I will install, but I have no idea which linux command could check it

thanks!

Then you don't have secure path installed.

2. I have installed the FCA2214 A6826A QLogic FC HBA, I just wanna make sure whether I install the secure path, if not I will install, but I have no idea which linux command could check it

Secure Path is not free. Use the alternate solution provided in the previous link.

To double check if it's installed run:

rpm -qa |grep -i secure-path

Yes.

To check if it's installed, and the version.

Hi Ivan

Whether I don't need to install the secure path for multiple-path support.

I have download the secure path from HP ITRC but I could not install it, I don't have the below 4 packs on /tmp/securepathRPM
Secure-Path-3.0-8.0.noarch.rpm
Secure-Path-3.0AFull-4.0.noarch.rpm
Secure-Path-3.0BFull-5.0.noarch.rpm
Secure-Path-3.0CFull-4.0.noarch.rpm
You said secure path not free, so whehther you means we don't buy secure path we no the 4 pachs. we could not update it? if I wanna buy from where redhat or HP?

Our linux box is HP Prolant blade server, already install QLogic FC HBA hardware and driver. I checked some doc of HP said could using Qlogic driver for single-path or multi-path failover mode on linux system.

Whether I could use Qlogic driver instend secure path function like the doc said.
thanks!
