  • Hello Peter,
     
    It doesn’t matter you use Japanese version or English version when you apply the MPIO featcure on Windows Server 2008.
     
    Q: On 2003 can I also add multipath featcure like 2008? Does it should be done with installation dvd number 2?
     
    A: No. Windows Server 2008 is the first version of Windows Server to include Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) inbox. you may consult the developer to install and uninstall the drivers and DSM on the Windows Server 2003 R2 system.
     
    Hope it helps.

  • You dont mention what OS you are using

    On Windows Server 2008, add the MultiPath feature if you are using Core Server

    Once you do that, you should be able to click "Start->Control Panel->Administrative tools->MPIO"

    From there, click on the "Discover Multi-Paths Tab" to use the Microsoft provided DSM

    or click on "discover multi-path tabs" to use the DSM you built

  • Oh I missed to mention which OS I am using. That would be Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard edition SP2. I am running Japanese version on a work station for testing, but if the edition matters I can re-install with English edition.
    On 2003 can I also add multipath featcure like 2008? Does it should be done with installation dvd number 2?
