number of paths different across ESXI

Hi All

Storage team just finish standardization of the FC zoning (they reduced number of paths to LUN's). Today I notice that some host see 4 paths (this is expected) and some more (12 paths) to same LUN 0. We tried to reboot one of the host that see more paths but it didn't help. Storage team double check configuration and they can't see any issue on there and. Let me know why this happen and how to fix it.

all paths are active, we just migrated and rebooted host but still shows 12 instead of 4 paths. Storage guys checking 3rd time zoning but all looks good 🙂

I doubt it is a VMware problem , my bet would be on the zoning, especially if you rebooted the host as that would rediscover all the paths completely.
