what is intended with 'multipathing' ?'multipathing' is not Directly Native support by the switch, you can use Multipath with Additional Software, example PowerPath by EMC.

The same node has 2 fibres connecting to each switch. I need to see every path.I've done the stmsboots (MPXIO) but it's mpathadm list lu still only shows half the connections (2) available.

hi assume this "stmsboots and mpathadm" are executable command in Solaris, is Correct ?Please execute the command "nsshow" ( by Connect all HBA/Port to the switches ) and post the result here.

Re: REQ: documentation for 'multipathing' on single switch.

I have since resolved this issue: which was an issue in our StorageTek arrays - which only likes one 'primary path per controller'.

We have since then quad-attached the host to the array and got increased throughput that way.
