Description Lee Yarwood 2016-11-03 13:02:56 UTC
Description of problem:
StorwizeSVCISCSIDriver provided Cinder volumes do not provide the required target_{portals,luns,iqns} via connection_info when Nova is using multipath. This is currently being worked on upstream as part of the following change and blueprint :

Add multipath enhancement to Storwize iSCSI driver

Storwize iSCSI Multipath enhancement

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ocata / OSP 11

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using the StorwizeSVCISCSIDriver Cinder volume driver attach a volume to a single instance.
2. Review the connected portals, targets, path devices etc.

Actual results:
Nova does not correctly connect to or disconnect from all required portals when using StorwizeSVCISCSIDriver supplied Cinder volumes. Only a single target_portal is listed in connection_info with a sendtargets query against this portal not returning the additional portals required to correctly form a multipath'd connection from the compute host.

Expected results:
Nova correctly connects to or disconnects from all required portals when using supplied Cinder volumes.

I don't have access to a Storwize storage, you know of any such system we can access? 

Is this a specific driver issue, or can I try to verify with any other iscsi driver instead, I'm guessing probably specific. 

In which case how would I verify this?

Comment 4 Paul Grist 2017-04-06 01:25:02 UTC
as discussed on email, this one needs to go back to IBM for partner verification.
