Failover mode 1 to 4 ALUA is online activity?

Rodolf

Hi ,

 

We have VNX 7500 with one Storage Group contain multiple ESX host (ESX 4.0, ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0)

In that we configured failover mode set 1. And now we asked to change the failover mode to 4 (ALUA).

 

Can anyone confirm the failover mode 1 to 4 ALUA is an online activity?

 

Or do we need ESX host reboot to get the setting effect. if Yes let me know its for all ESX / (ESX 4.0, ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0)

And also confirm do we need a separate Storage Group for ESX4.0 and ESXi5.

 

Configuration

 

VNX 7500 (Block)
software ver: 5.31.000.5.704

 

Thanks in Advance.
