Setup SAN disks (Clariion) using VERITAS on DL380 G3 running SLES10

Hi,
I am trying to setup SAN disks (Clariion) using VERITAS on DL380 G3 running SLES10.
I am trying to setup the disks as power devices. Hence, use power path to manage the multi paths instead of DMP (VERITAS).
When I run vxdisk
>> vxdisk -o alldgs list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
cciss/c0d0 auto:none - - online invalid
emcpowerb simple data101 data1 online
sda auto:simple - (data1) online aliased

However, this does not survive a reboot.
How can I setup VERITAS to use power devices and keep the configuration after reboot?
thanks ,
A.K.

Shalom,

Best approach is:
1) Do the OS install with the system disconnected from the SAN. Then connect it.
2) Install the latest PSP for your server assuming your OS is on the support list. If your OS is not on the support list, find a supported OS with PSP support.
3) On the Clarion configuration console set up access by your fiber card's World Wide Name.
