Where is the Microsoft MPIO config steps? If go to http://wiki.osnexus.com/mediawiki/index.php/QuantaStor_Users_Guide#Configuring_Microsoft_MPIO It shows Microsoft MPIO but then goes right to LInux. I am missing something? Thanks!

Hi Ian,
Sorry about that, the Wiki documentation is a work in progress.. We'll get a section added for MPIO configuration soon. In the mean time, you can enable the MPIO feature in Windows Server and then use the included Microsoft MPIO driver with QuantaStor. They have a section where you'll need to enter the vendor (8 characters) and product ID (16 characters) as one line with the exact number of spaces:


OSNEXUS QUANTASTOR

(Note, there is one space after OSNEXUS and six (6) additional spaces after QUANTASTOR for the product ID)
Have a look at this article on the Microsoft site for more detail on mpclaim, but you can configure MPIO directly through the MPIO control panel which you'll find under Administrative Tools.
There's more information on that here

Ian there was an issue with the device ID generation that was giving MPIO fits that has been fixed in v2.0.
