I have a storage: HP MSA 2040 with 2 controllers
It connects with 3 servers (2 DL160 and 1 DL180).
Use each server: 1 HBA board with 2 MiniSAS cables between the server and the controllers
  • HBA HPE H241 12 GB 2PORT EXT (726911-B21)
  • HPE Ext 2.0m MiniSAS HD to MiniSAS HD Cbl (12Gbps) (716197-B21)


How should I add the storage volume on my servers with Proxmox?
Install Multipath-tools. This is correct?
