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.
