New setting in HP 3PAR and VMware vSphere 5 Best Practices document.

Small change in the updated whitepaper from HP and VMware vSphere 5 when using Round Robin multi-pathing policy (which is the recommended best practice. )

The old recommendation was to use IOPS=100, which has now changed to IOPS=1.

Make sure host persona 11 is selected!

Issue the following command on your ESXi host(s) that are being served storage from the 3PAR.

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s "VMW_SATP_ALUA" -P "VMW_PSP_RR" -O iops=1 -c "tpgs_on" -V "3PARdata" -M "VV" -e "HP3PAR Custom iSCSI/FC/FCoE ALUA Rule"
