Dell MD3000 Multipath on Debian

We are in the process of deploying some new infrastructure to store the 150+GB of new content (media only, not including text) uploaded to WordPress.com daily. More here

When the hardware was initially deployed to us, they were configured in a high availability (HA) setup, with each controller on the MD3000 connected to a controller on the R710. This way, if a controller fails, in theory the storage is still accessible. The problem with this type of setup is that in order to make it work flawlessly, you need to use the Dell multi-path proxy and mpt drivers, not the ones provided by the Linux kernel. Dell’s provided stuff doesn’t work on Debian.
