HPMSA-series P2000 G3 with Windows Server 2012 MPIO

 


HP P2000 G3 with Windows Server 2012 standard 搭配下, 原本以為下載HP official Windows MPIO DSM for EVA 即刻解決,但裝完卻無作用Orz,詢問原廠答覆是無需安裝,僅用Microsoft Windows Server 2012 MPIO即可!!

Soulation:

step0. servermanagercmd -install multipath-io 或GUI 安裝功能 MPIO

step1.mpclaim.exe -h // check vendor information

step2.mpclaim -e

ocsetup MultipathIo /norestart
step3.mpclaim -n -i -a // reboot 

step4.mpclaim -r // check 

**change mode**
mpclaim.exe –L –M {Number}
—————————————–
0: clear the policy
1: failover only
2: round robin
3: Round Robin with Subset
4: Least Queue Depth
5: Weighted Paths
6: Least Blocks
7: Vendor Specific
—————————————–

**Defaults**
1) For ALUA storage, “Fail Over Only” policy is the default policy applied , #1
2) For non-ALUA storage  “Round Robin"with Subset” is the default policy used ,#2
* Please Note: The defaults only apply to new devices and to devices which have not had an LB policy set as persisted.

step5. HP原廠建議修改Windows Server Registry  " PDORemovePeriod " FC 90 sec , iSCSI 300 sec
