Multipathing for Intel® Modular Server and VMware* ESX


Last Reviewed: 03-Mar-2016

When configuring VMware* on compute modules within the Intel® Modular Server, the following multipathing settings should be used:

  • MRU (most recently used): Selects the first working path, discovered at system boot time. If this path becomes unavailable, the ESX/ESXi host switches to an alternative path and continues to use the new path while it is available.
  • Fixed: Uses the designated preferred path flag, if it has been configured. Otherwise, it uses the first working path discovered at system boot time. If the ESX/ESXi host cannot use the preferred path or it becomes unavailable, ESX/ESXi selects an alternative available path.

Do not use the round robin setting.
