Confirming your storage system configuration
You must make sure that your storage system is properly cabled, that the protocol services are licensed, if required, and that the services are started. Proper configuration ensures that the storage system is accessible to host systems.
Configuring FC HBAs and switches
Install and configure one or more supported Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) for Fibre Channel connections to the storage system.
Installing multipath I/O software
You must install MPIO software and have multipathing set up if your Windows host has more than one path to the storage system. Without MPIO software, the operating system might see each path as a separate disk, which can lead to data corruption.
Repairing and removing Windows Host Utilities
You can use the Repair option of the Host Utilities installation program to update HBA and Windows registry settings. You can remove the Host Utilities entirely, either interactively or from the Windows command line.
