Re: is it possible to HBA (disable paths from a particular HBA)

You can just run the "portdisable" command on the san switch (if fabric os based). If multipath is working correctly, it should be not a problem.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
