Issue Description
Can different types of multipathing software be installed on the same application server?

Solution
No. Different types of multipathing software are mutually incompatible. If an application server has already run Windows MPIO, Symantec Dynamic Multi-Pathing, or IBM multipathing software, a further installation of Huawei Symantec UltraPath software will get scanned storage disks offline or cause an incorrect number of scanned LUNs. Therefore, before installing Huawei UltraPath software, uninstall the existing multipathing software of other manufacturers.
