The SnapRestore and SnapConnect operations does not work if the multipathing type is migrated.

If you have an existing multipathing type set as None, and later you tend to change the multipathing type as NativeMPIO, when you execute Snapconnect and SnapRestore operations for the existing Snapshot copies, you might encounter an error message as "Unable to find multipathing software linuxnull as present in the snapshot".

Example for SnapRestore operation

snapdrive snap restore -fs /mnt/tstmp -snapname withoutmpio
0002-105 Command error: Unable to find multipathing software linuxnull as present in the snapshot

Example for Snapconnect operation

snapdrive snap connect -fs /mnt/tstmp -snapname
f3020-225-54:/vol/vol1:withoutmpio -autorename
0002-105 Command error: Unable to find multipathing software
linuxnull as present in the snapshot
