Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The J4000 family of arrays is designed for redundancy between the attached server and array . This is accomplished by cabling two data paths, along with the installation and configuration of multipath software. In this working example, we configure, verify, and test a multipath configuration between a T2000 server with Solaris 10, a J4500 array and MPxIO software (aka Solaris Traffic Manager).  See the latest Array Release Notes for all supported operating systems, HBAs and patches required for multipathing support. 

Note: NOT all SATA drives are supported with Solaris mpxio. See the J4200/J4400 Array Release Notes section "Supported Hard Disk Drives for Multipathing With Solaris" for supported DISKS. SATA drive model ST32500NSSUN250G is not supported. ST35000NSSUN500G and ST37500NSSUN750G require DRIVE f/w 3AZB  which is included with CAM 6.6.x and later.
