Note:

  • If other vendors multipath software is installed on the host, a warning message or a pop-up might appear during Host Readiness execution.
    Installation of new multipath configuration rules (claiming rules) on Windows platform can cause a short removal and re-adding devices path which does not impact or disrupt applications.
    Other vendor multipathing software might detect this short path removal and alert in the form of a warning message or a pop-up, these warning can safely be ignored.
