Hi,
MPIO for iSCSI is automatically configured for iSCSI targets if those devices are supported by the AIX default PCMs (Path Control Modules) or by vendor-supplied PCMs (if installed).
You can determine whether your devices are supported by issuing
odmget -q uniquetype=disk/iscsi/mpioosdisk PdAt | grep deflt
The last few lines contain vendor/device information for supported devices.
If you don't find your  device/model in the list it is not supported by default and you will have to ask the vendor whether there is an AIX PCM available.

Dell advises they have no such PCM at this time.  Apparently the way they recommend accomplishing this is using QLogic HBA's and QLogic's SANsurfer app.
