Pinned topic DS + Storwize MPIO drivers

‏2013-08-29T08:19:47Z |

Hi all,

I have a question regard mpio drivers for storage systems DS and Stowwize.

On server side I have Windows Server 2008R2 with this drivers on it

mpio Microsoft Multi-Path Bus Driver Running Boot Start Microsoft Corporation 6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255) 11/21/2010 04:24:00 151 c:\windows\system32\drivers\mpio.sys

connected on DS5100 and DS4800.

Im working on implementation of Storwize V7000 and data migration from DS systems. As requirement I need to install Subsystem Device Driver Device Specific Module (SDDDSM) v2.4.3.3-5 on these servers .

I dont have virtualization licenses to keep DS systems virtualized and want to keep using DS systems on these server.

Can I connect these servers with SDDDSM mpio drivers with DS systems?

Thank you,

Bane

    You cannot use the SDDDSM for DS 4000 and DS5000 series. (It Works with DS6xxx and DS8xxx, but not DS4xxx)

     

    What you can do is having 2 multipath drivers installed at the same time, so you keep the old and install the new as well.
