You should add an entry in multipath.conf for your device. Here is an example 
of what I use for my SCST HA configuration

         device {
                vendor                  "SCST_[FB]IO"
                product                 ".*"
                #prio_callout            "/sbin/mpath_prio_alua /dev/%n"
                #path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
                path_grouping_policy    multibus
                failback                immediate
                getuid_callout          "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
                rr_min_io               100
                no_path_retry           queue
                #path_checker            scsi_dh_alua
                path_checker            tur
                #features                "0"
                features                "1 queue_if_no_path"
                #hardware_handler       "1 alua"
                hardware_handler        "0"

Once that's done, reboot or force dm_mulitpath and multipathd to reload. 

After that, I add the SR in XenCenter using a single path, then in the CLI, I 
unplug the pbd and recreate it using both iSCSI portals. 

Here is the command I use:

xe pbd-create sr-uuid=2eb2b66b-9353-00e4-1504-dbf4d7e1fb22 
device-config:SCSIid=25a526a5255693468 device-config:port=3260 

I think you can add both portal IPs in XenCenter, but you'll have to try. 

Hope that helps..
