Hey all -
So we’re trying to upgrade all of our boxen with multiport fiber channel adapters so that we might run multiple cables, one to each of our fiber channel switches, for some extra redundancy. I haven’t yet done this, but as we know, a SINGLE SFP+ fiber cable has two runs, and as such, when I do an
fdisk -l on my boxes after doing the appropriate fiber channel zoning and such, I usually end up with two
/dev/sdX devices that reflect a SINGLE “virtual disk” on our fiber channel connected SAN appliance (a Dell PowerVault md3600f).
It works, but I figure it’s probably not best practice to simply mount ONE of those to a path. How do I mount them so that I’m appropriately taking advantage of multipathing? I’ve never done this before.
