Using MPIO

NOTE: Ensure that you have an active iSCSI connection before installing MPIO. Not having an active connection before installing MPIO causes the Add support for iSCSI devices feature to be unavailable.

Install an MPIO product on the system that is accessing the array. MPIO requires multiple network adapters dedicated to the iSCSI task. When connecting your iSCSI initiators, select Properties and click MPIO.

MPIO determines which paths to a device are in an active state and can be used for load balancing. The load balancing policy (Least Queue Depth is recommended by HPE) is set in the DSM. This policy determines how the I/O requests are actually routed.
