I Need to check if SF 5.1 will support multipathing or I need different MPIO software

.

I need to upgrade from SF 4.3 to SF 5.1. In the previous setup there was no need for MPIO software.

No the customer is change for SAN setup with 2 HBA, I am using NetApp storage.

I Need to check if SF 5.1 will support multipathing or I need different MPIO software like NetApp MPIO.

If yes what is the license needed.

 

Thanks,

Amin Abu-Dosh

For 5.1 SP2, direct upgrades are supported as far back as 5.0 RP1a. 

 

Here is a link to the Installation and Upgrade Guide for 5.1 SP2:

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/5.1sp2/windows/productguides/pdf/VCS_InstallUpgrade_51SP2.pdf

 

For upgrading from 4.3, you will probably find it easiest to just uninstall SFW and then install 5.1 SP2 fresh.

 

By the way, this is the main page for our current documentation:

DMP comes with SFW, but you do need a DMP license for it.

 

Also, review the hardware compatibility list to make sure that your configuration is supported:
