Hi all ,
I have ESX 3.5 update 4 that connected to Netapp Storage.
i install the ESX Host utilities , and need to run config_mpath and config_hba.
should i run this commands for both Storage controllers ? or only on the controller that the LUNS resides on ?
You run these utils on each ESX host connecting to a filer, not on a filer / controller(s).
i know that and i run the command on the ESX.
my question was:
let's say that i run this command:
config_hba --configure --secure --access filername:user:pass
if i have a clustered controller - should i write instead of filername both of the controllers ? or just the controller that handle the LUNS ?
Both controllers to make sure things are optimised for failover. But running against the second controller will do little for the multi-pathing.
Also, I believe that if you go by the docs (step by step) the install script will run what's needed during install (helpful at least initially....definitely a good question for later runs).
