Solaris SAN Configuration and Multipathing Guide

Configuring SAS Boot Devices

The Solaris Multipathed IO software allows Solaris 10 Update 5 OS hosts to boot from a multipathed SAS device, or from a SATA device connected to a SAS controller. Only the bundled mpt driver is supported for SAS multipathing in the Solaris 10 Update 5 OS release.

Some SAS and SATA devices might not support multipathing but will still function as non-multipathed devices. See for more information.
