Hi all,

I'm currently configuring our new TSM server. This new box has 4 FC
adapters that all connect to the same FC switch that again connects to
our STK 9840C and STK 9940B drives. I was under the impression that with
AIX 5.2 I would be able to configure AIX to know about the redundancy in
this set-up and do some automatic fail-over and load-balancing.
Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case, the devices are not
multi-path capable according to AIX. Has anobody succesfully configured
TSM on AIX using multipath I/O ? isit possible? If so, what drivers did
you load in AIX to enable this?

Met vriendelijke groeten,
