Problem with SAN Lun and Windows 2003

Hello,

I have a server running windows 2003 connected to a fiber switch, which is in turn connected to the DS3400. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong here but the LUN I created for this server is showing up as mulitple drives in disk management instead of one drive. Only one drive can be formatted and used - the others error out. Can anyone think of why this is? Let me know if you want screen shots or any other information.

Thanks!

One than one path to the disks?

Need multi-pathing software or MPIO.
