SUN Storage 7000 Series - IPMP anyone?
Anyone using IPMP, what are peoples setups want to use this with the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator? Mainly due to Microsoft’s limitations of trucking when it comes to there initiator.

Using IPMP will not provide any real performance gains, it will provided resiliency only.
The real big win would be to get Microsoft's MPIO & iSCSI to work with the Sun 7000. I've had problems in the past and never had a reliable solution. Maybe the latest patches fix the issues.

Just an update,
I’ve been investigating MPIO and it works very well with the 7000’s, Currently using Windows 2008 R2 you can easily see the load is evenly split between the NICs\ subnets and Windows iSCSI doesn't worry that you can only bond one IQN per link which I heard XenServer has some issues with. (Sun\Oracle Forums) It’s a good setup with redundant links and load balancing bundled together in one package. Yeah forget IPMP was a pain to setup and no gain if you’re using MPIO.
