Administering Multipathing Devices Through mpathadm Commands

You determine and configure Solaris OS multipathing support by using mpathadm commands. Starting with the Solaris 10 Update 3 OS, 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 logical unit are consistent with the T10 specification.
