MPIO Windows Server 2012

Hi experts,

I have a Dell server running Server 2012 DataCenter. The blade has a QLogic QME 2472 dual port FC HBA installed and is connected into the FC SAN. I have presented a lun from a NetApp device to the server but see two instances of the lun in disk manager.

I have installed the latest 2012 drivers for the card, and also installed the MPIO feature on the server, yet still see two luns so the MPIO is not working correctly.

Any advice please?

Thanks.

Needed the NetApp DSM software despite Windows 2012 apparently supporting it out of the box.
