If your storage array is ALUA compliant (as NetApp arrays are) then you’re in luck because the vSphere NMP is, by default, ALUA aware.
To enable Aula the igroups must be changed on each controller in the cluster
igroup set "igroupname" alua yes
Install ESX host utilities from netapp and run
config_mpath -s -m -a netappcontroller:root:password -a netappcontroller:root:password
This will enable round robin.
Round robin will allow for proper load balancing mult pathing
esxcli nmp device list on each ESX host to ensure RR and Aula are working
