For the Clariion 4500, you need to set the hardware_handler to
	"3 emc 1 0"

(The trespass command to transfer ownership of a LU from one
Service-Processor to the other is different from the FC4500 to the EMC
CX series. I've got to admit I've not tested the FC4500 yet, though.)

You also want the pp_emc callout from the newer multipath-tools
package and use that as the priority callout, and group by priority.
