Is anyone using ASM in a EVA8000 configuration using Multi-Pathing?

We have seen that, without any multipathing software, only the device files corresponding
to the primary path(s) can be owned by Oracle. The remaining 7 device files corresponding
to the secondary paths must not be owned by Oracle, otherwise ASM gets confused.

So evidently we must use a multipathing software which will present 1 virtualized path to ASM.

We are a HPUX environment. What product should we use? Secure Path?
