VMware: Multipathing Status: Patrial/No Redundancy


Couple of weeks ago I asked on Twitter “Can anyone explain this #VMware storage view? MP status: Partial/No Redundancy.. Same cluster, same Dell Eql. SAN” .. now I was reading the release notes of vSphere 4.1 update 1 and there’s the fix…


Multipathing status for datastores that have fully redundant paths might be reported as having Partial/No Redundancy:

In the Storage View tab of vSphere Client, under certain conditions, volumes that are reported as “Partial/No Redundancy” actually have fully redundant paths. This type of misreporting occurs on iSCSI volumes with hardware initiators. VMware support called this a display bug

Cool, this issue is solved in vSphere 4.1 update 1

  1. Nope, just put up a 4.1 vcenter server and gettign this on 3.5 machines.

    Unless its solved in the hypervisor and not the Vcenter Server itself?

    but hte link above goes t othe vcenter server release notes, and its still broken here….
