This is described in book shipped with your fscsiX adapter.

Be so kind and post output of "oslevel -r", name and model of your server, and name and model of problem adapter.

Did you install TotalStorage MultiPath from CD???
Configured via diag utility it shows after as single adaptor.


Maybe more recent driver than on CD:
