Administering Multipathing Devices (mpathadm)

You determine and configure Solaris OS multipathing support by using mpathadm commands. The mpathadm command enables multipathing administration through the ANSI standard Multipath Management API. The terms used in this chapter to denote a path, initiator port, target port, and LUN are consistent with the T10 specification.
