  • Page 27

    Installation Procedures - All Deployments ■ After configuring the LUNs, remember to: — Verify that all HBA connections to the MSA are recognized, including both paths in a multipath configuration. Each time the MSA is power-cycled, all active connections to the MSA are automatically detected and identified by their World Wide Port Name (WWPN).

  • Page 28

    Installation Procedures - All Deployments — Manual load balancing—Through the ACU or the CLI, indicate the preferred path (controller ownership) for each LUN. This method is recommended for environments that are load balancing from the host. ■ In dual-controller multipath configurations (both active/active and active/passive), you must install some management software (such as multipathing software, management/monitoring utilities, and array configuration software) on each server with access to the MSA.
