Description of problem:
If /etc/multipath.conf contains a line
then messages like these
Aug 8 06:21:30 infl0242 multipathd: DM message failed [set_pg_timeout 0]
show up during boot or multipathd restarts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update device-mapper-multipath to the versions mentioned above
2. add pg_timeout none to the defaults section of the multipath.conf
3. reboot / restart multipathd
multipathd: DM message failed [set_pg_timeout 0]
no (error) message
Yeah. The kernel doesn't support pg_timeout (it never has. The patch wasn't accepted). So, setting it to any valid value (including "none"), will cause it to send a message that the kernel doesn't accept.
I assume that the issue is
# multipathd show config
I can fix this so that multipathd will accept any value for pg_timeout, and not do anything with it, and not display that value when you run the "show config" command
