Hello all,

Just wondering if anyone can advise what the specific backend array settings should be for a VMWare ESX 3.5 box connected with 2 HBAs to 2 fabrics and zoned to ports 0A and 1A on the AMS200?

I would like the VMware box to access the array down one port (eg 0A) and in the event of a failure (eg switch, gbic, controller) then to fail over to the other controller. I don't want it to round robin.

I have already requested the VMWare config guide from HDS, but in the meantime if anyone can advise what the following settings should be:

Simple Settings
------------------
Platform
Alternate Path
Failover

I'm also assuming that we don't install any HDS software (Eg HDLM) on the VMWare box itself - is this correct?

Many thanks
