VADP multipath - active/passive
Wondering if someone can help.
I'm aware that (ESX datastore) multipathing does not work when using a linux media server as a backup host in an active/active configuration.
However I was wondering if it would work in an active/passive function.
e.g. the datastore is presented down both paths to the linux media server but only one path would be used by VADP. If this path failed, on restarting the backups would the "passive" path be used without any intervention? (other than manually restarting backups)
I've searched all over and can't seem to find any references other than multipathing is not supported on Linux backup hosts
Hope I've made myself clear
Thanks for any assistance you can give
