To install the Equallogic Multi Pathing Module
SCP the zipped vib to a location accessible by your vHost.
dell-eql-mem-esx5-22.214.171.1245964.zip to vHost01
Then SSH to the vHost and run the following command, editing for your location
~ # esxcli software vib install –depot /vmfs/volumes/*****/dell-eql-mem-esx5-126.96.36.1995964.zip
You’ll see the result similar to below (from an older version installed)

Once you’re running equallogic storage multi pathing module run
esxcli equallogic param list

TotalSessions 512 1024 64 Max number of sessions per host.
VolumeSessions 12 12 1 Max number of sessions per volume.
MemberSessions 4 4 1 Max number of sessions per member per volume.
MinAdapterSpeed 1000 10000 10 Minimum adapter speed for iSCSI multipathing.
~ # esxcli equallogic param set -n=VolumeSessions -v=12
~ # esxcli equallogic param set -n=MemberSessions -v=4
run those two esxcli statements on ssh.
your member sessions are probably 2 and the volume sessions are probably 4 or 6
then rescan the paths on ths iscsi software adapter, you should triple the paths
