Is anyone using Secure Path with EVA8000's?

We are struggling with how to configure it for use with ASM.

Secure Path does not provide a single virtual path for active/active arrays
like the EVA8000. Supposedly it provides the preferred path for active/active
arrays, and I can choose any active path as a preferred path.

However, the Asm instance will not start up if all of the device files for all of the
paths are owned by Oracle. Only the device files for the preferred path can be owned
by Oracle. So how can the fail-over mechanism work?
