Multipath configuration variables
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You need to change few configuration variables in the
snapdrive.conf file for MPIO to work with Linux.
After installing SnapDrive for UNIX on the host, edit the
/opt/Netapp/snapdrive/snapdrive.conf file and change the following settings to the appropriate values:
enable-implicit-host-preparation=on # Enable implicit host preparation for LUN creation default-transport="FCP" # Transport type to use for storage provisioning, when a decision is needed multipathing-type= "nativempio" # Multipathing software to use when more than one multipathing solution is available
Restart the SnapDrive daemon for the
snapdrive.conf file changes to take effect. After SnapDrive daemon restart, SnapDrive commands start using the DM-MP stack.
