    Native Multipathing Plugin question and Storage Mode Active /Active , Active/passive discovery

    zeebahi Novice

      Hi everyone.

      Let say we have  a  NET APP Storage array with two Storage processors. These processors are configured as active active. Assume we have multiple paths between  ESXI and this storage array.

      We want to implement multi path and we would like to  use NMP plug-in.

      1) Do we have to tell ESXI that Storage array is using active active or it is something ESXI discovers automatically via communication with Storage array?

      2) If  EXSI does not discover the Storage Mode  ( Active/Active or Active/Passive) on its won, does  Operator have to  tell ESXI via configuration what SATP to use  say active active?


      Thanks and have a good weekend!!
