Easy Way to Verify that MPIO on a 2012 R2 and 2008 R2 Guest is Setup Properly?

I wanted to make sure that the two NICs on our 2012 R2 and 2008 R2 guests have MPIO configured properly.
We had failed to turn iSCSI support on within the MPIO console for several of our VMs.

 

Is there an easy way to verify after we've enabled that support to see all attached volumes are now using MPIO properly?

 

I've use mpclaim -s -d and I see all the available disks with a Least Queue Depth policy set and the DSM Name listed as Nimble DSM.
But we've seen some abnormalities at times where we didn't think it was load balancing properly, so I was looking for another way to verify that it's configured on these two OSes properly.
