How to disable dynamic multipathing in VERITAS Volume Manager (tm) for Windows NT

Solution



Dynamic multipathing (DMP) is automatically installed during the Volume Manager set-up. By default, DMP is disabled. If circumstances warrant the use of a third-party DMP, such as EMC PowerPath, the VERITAS DMP drivers will need to be disabled. To do this, perform the following:

1. Set all VxDMP devices to disabled by navigating to Control Panel > Devices and selecting Startup (Figure 1)

Figure 1
 

2. Select Disabled for all VERITAS DMP devices (VxDMP, VxDMPCpq, VxDMPHit, VxDMPNec)
3. Click OK (Figure 2)

4. Click Close (Figure 3)
