Environment: Windows2003 +SP1 machine installed with HDLM 05-91 and couple of LUNs assigned from HP-EVA disk array (Model: HP HSV1100)

With the current environment on HP-EVA we are not able to see the Physical Volume names through command line as all we get is the ?Device ID? is there any way where we can explicitly specify the drive name while configuring HDLM. Do we have any workaround?

Question #1:
When we run the command "dlnkmgr view ?path" it is returning the paths but without having the Physical volume names.
How to get the physical volume names?

Question #2:
How can we set the Load Balance priority? i.e. Path Priority/Weight

LU Output #1:
Product : HP_HSV100
SerialNumber : -
LUs : 2
