MPIO Changes in Windows Server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    we found out today that with Windows Server 2016 after installing the MPIO feature you need to reboot the server first, before installing a third party DSM Software like in our case EMC PowerPath.
    There is also a KB which explains that: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4058593/can-t-claim-multipath-disks-after-installing-mpio-and-3rd-party-soluti 

    My question is: What exactly was changed in MPIO in Windows Server 2016, that you have to reboot first? In all previous versions of Windows Server the DSM Installation could handle the installation of MPIO feature itself without first rebooting! I cannot find any documentation about any changes...

    Thanks

    Ville
