Windows 2008 R2 MPIO Device Hardware ID - VNX mixed pool LUN

Hello,

I am trying to add MPIO support for the VNX LUNs on Windows 2008 R2 server.

Can anyone tell me what should be the Device Hardware ID for mixed pool LUNs?

The host connectivity guide has the following:

RAID 0      DGC     RAID 0

RAID 1      DGC     RAID 1

RAID 3      DGC     RAID 3

RAID 5      DGC     RAID 5

RAID 6      DGC     VRAID

But nothing about a pol LUN?

I use this:

@echo off

setlocal

cls

:: Execute the following commands to allow Windows native failover (MPIO) to control VNX devices:

:: 5 SPACES after DGC

:: 10 spaces between raid5/3/1/0 and "

:: 9 Space between raid 10 and "

:: 11 spaces between VRAID and "

:: 12 spaces between DISK and "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     RAID5          "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     RAID3          "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     RAID1          "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     RAID0          "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     RAID10         "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     VRAID           "

mpclaim.exe -n -i -d "DGC     DISK            "

::Check the box next to Add support for iSCSI devices

mpclaim.exe -n -i -a ""

endlocal
