Is the Host Utilities Kit 7.0 needed separately with MPIO DSM 4.1p1 on Windows 2008 and 2012 servers? A recent instructor said HUK was bundled with DSM4.1p1 during install. Or you at least need HUK7.0 without the DSM4.1p1 package.

You almost always want to install the Host Utilities Kit in a SAN environ.
It's almost guaranteed that if you open a support case, they'll ask you to run diagnostics included in the HUK.
I haven't checked the downloads lately.
The DSM is s'posed to be included with the HUK, but I don't think the HUK is included with the DSM ?
Most of my clients just use the native Microsoft DSM ...
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
