    I'm trying to set up iSCSI initiator to use MPIO.

    Do I need to make every port on both controllers on the SAN a different iSCSI target?
    If all ports are called the same I'm not getting any results. If I call every port different than in iSCSI initiator I can see 4 targets and storage multipath driver recognizes different paths but it isn't tidy.

    I've got 2 clustered hosts with 2 dedicated iSCSI NICs each. I've got 2 switches and a SAN (Fujitsu ETERNUS DX60). Each host is connected to both switches and each switch is connected to both controllers on the SAN.

    I can initiate connection to every single controller port on the SAN. How do I make them work together?

    Should I give each port a different iSCSI name thus creating different iSCSI target and multipath between targets or should they all be one target?

    Nevermind. Figured it out! :D

    One target. Multiple sessions. Sweet!
