  • 1.  Vendor/Product string for VSP F600

    Posted 12-01-2021 11:39
    Can anyone tell me the exact SCSI vendor/product string I need to give Windows MPIO for VSP F600 storage?  And if this is somewhere in the docs, please let me know where, because neither I nor Google can find it.

    TIA,
    David

    Also, does Hitachi supply a DSM for Windows MPIO without HDLM?

    Thank you, William.

    As it turns out, the Server 2016 box just seems to have needed another reboot, beyond the one it said it needed, to sort things out.  After that, HITACHI OPEN-V showed up as an available device type to add.  Having done that and rebooted yet again, our F600 device with four paths showed up as a single disk.

    Is there a Hitachi-provided DSM for the VSP F600?

    Hello David,
    From Hitachi, you can use Hitachi Dynamic Link Manager.
