    P-2-V Cluster Validation issues with 2008 R2 and MPIO

    taylorb Expert

      I am trying to cluster a Physical box to a Virtual box hosted on ESX 4.0.   Everything passes the validation tool except MPIO because of course I don't have MPIO or my IBM DSM installed on the Virtual node.    Anyone have any ideas?  Can I somehow bypass this?  All the other storage failover tests passed so I know this is a non-issue, it is just the the MPIO equivalent is handled at the ESX level vs inside windows

       

       

      Here's the failure note from the validation report:

       

      There are no registered DSM on node node2.hostname.com

      DSM named IBM MPIO Generic Module, installed on node node1.hostname.com is missing on node node2.hostname.com

      DSM named Microsoft DSM, installed on node node1.hostname.com is missing on node node2.hostname.com
