The MPIO test documentation has incorrect information in the software requirements section. Here is what the documentation says:

 

Software Requirements:

 

1.       Windows Server 2008

2.       Software components included with the device that is being tested.

3.       Unsupported Software: Third Party MPIO Solution that does not use a Microsoft MPIO DSM.

 

The 4th requirement is misleading the users to assume that, the MPIO test is not applicable for logoing the third party DSMs. But this is a required test for 3rd party DSM submissions. We reworded this software requirements section as below to avoid confusion.

 

Software Requirements:

 

1.       Windows Server 2008

2.       Hardware Storage RAID array that uses either the Microsoft DSM (device specific module) or a 3rd party DSM that interfaces to Microsoft MPIO core architecture

3.       Software components included with the DSM or Hardware Storage RAID array being tested

 

You may see this change in the WLK 1.2.
