I have tried using separate subnets on the different interfaces on the
Equallogic box and host - but the client host would still only find
the volume once.

I've now heard back from Dell - and it appears it can't be done with
the software initiator on CentOS4/RHEL4 - but should work with CentOS5

Thanks
