Issue Description

 

Customer request bellow

We are looking at multi pathing on our VMware estate connected to our S5500T and we would just like some advice around if 1)Round Robin is supported and also 2) if AULA is supported, also if 1 is supported does 2 also need to be set for it to work?

Solution

Round Robin policy is supported but Huawei recommendation is Fixed policy.

Most ALUA arrays don’t use Round Robin.

Fixed policy support AULA but need be activated from the storage.

We go to sub-tree on ISM => SAN Services => Mappings = > Initiators => Select => Modify => Modify Initiator => Enable ALUA /FIG 1

Mappings = > Initiators /FIG 2

Mappings = > Initiators => Select => Modify => Modify Initiator => Enable ALUA /FIG 3

Please see attach the print screen AULA activation steps
