About 2 weeks ago, I opened a SR with Novell regarding multipathing. we have 2 identical servers and was able to get multipathing working on one with no problems, but unable to get it to work on the other. After working with the Engineer at Novell, we put the SLES 10.2 multipath-tools on this server. This enabled us to get mulitpathing running and configured. Since that time, my backup throughput has decreased to a crawl. As far as I can tell, the mulitpath.conf is configured correctly and I can see all the paths when running mulitpath -ll. Does anyone have any ideas? Our HBA's are Emulex LPe1105 attaching to a HDS SAN.
