Abstract: This article explains the steps for Power Systems SAN multipath configuration using the SAN port virtualization feature NPIV. Using this virtualization feature, the SAN HBA port utilization can be increased and based on the bandwidth requirements it can reduce the overall HBAs required for SAN access. This document shows the configuration done using IBM AIX Operating System and shows the NPIV configuration part only. It does not explain the SAN switch configuration in detail or the details like VIOS installation, Virtual SCSI mapping, etc.
