    Unhappy P2000 San round robin

    Hi all,

    Wonder if someone could help.

    Got a hp p2000 last year can only get mutlipath working in fail over only. Round robin selected get error 'the parameter are incorrect' looked in device manager under te mutlipath for the device under mpio policy round robin isn't a option.

    What am I doing wrong....

    Many thanks in advance

    How is it currently setup?

    I'm guessing ISCSI here?

    Have you got two seperate vswitches (or at least two vmkernel ports on the same vswitch) with different subnets?

    EDIT: realised thats for VMware! Erm you will need two nics and two discovery IP's on different subnets

    Hp p2000 directly connected to two dl380 gen one 2008r2 and one win2012, both controllers on difference subnet.

    Nic1 server 1 ip 10.0.0.1 connects to controller A 10.0.0.2
    Nic2 server 1 ip 10.0.1.1 connects to controller B 10.0.1.2

    Nic1 server 2 ip 10.0.0.3 connects to controller A 10.0.0.4
    Nic2 server 2 ip 10.0.1.3 connects to controller B 10.0.1.4

    Then that should work - I have only ever used a P2000 with VMware I'm afraid.

    I think you have to use the management software for the sans, HP supply it. I know I was looking at having to do that with the 8 P4000 nodes I have.

    In Windows 2008r2 you need to configure MPIO to support the P2000. Otherwise you only get failover paths.

    Something like

    ocsetup MultipathIo /norestart

    mpclaim -n -i -a

    Not with Hyper-V as such but with Server 2008 R2 as the host

    We have a 2 node Hyper-V cluster where I work with a HP P2000 MSA SAN, I think it defaulted to round robin here after MPIO was setup properly for the iSCSI connections, I will check now
