Don’t be put of by the alphabet soup. Basically, you can upload and install your <vendors> path-selection-plug-in and make your ESX hosts zing along from storage perspective – and not be restricted by the VMware defaults of MRU, Fixed/Preferred and Round-Robin. I’m still waiting on licenses from EMC, and there’s minor problem with Storage Views in vSphere4 which came to light this week. But in generally its realitive easy. I’ve documented the proceedure for install EMC’s PowerPath for VMware and should just sneak its way into the Storage chapter on my new book on vSphere4.
