SAN Multipath for P260?
« on: July 19, 2015, 09:53:31 PM »
Hello there,

Do you all face problem with multipath configuration in P260 (VIOS, VIO Client) to connect to SAN Storage like v7000? I'm not sure this guide of IBM working properly with FlexSystem:


Because when we finish installing and rebooting server, some commands not shown outputs like in this article. For example in out environment:

# pcmpath query device

No device file found

# datapath query device

No device file found

Does anyone have idea? Do we have to set special parameter for environment because in P260 we have to use oem_setup_env to change padmin user to have full control with root permission.

Not sure about your issue, regardless want to point out that in P260, you don't have enough paths to have a true hardare multipath within the chassis with dual vio servers.  So you still have a single point of failure.
