Description zhouweigang09 2017-06-23 21:55:46 EDT
  We submitted a bug to integrate Huawei storage's multipath configuration in RHEL system by default with bug 1333334,and we found it works well with RHEL 6.9.
  Now we want to upgrade the configuration from later RHEL v6 versions as follows:
  device {
      vendor                      "HUAWEI"
      product                     "XSG1"
      path_grouping_policy        group_by_prio
      getuid_callout              "/lib/udev/scsi_id --whitelisted --device=/dev/%n"
      prio                        alua
      path_checker                tur
      path_selector              “round-robin 0“     
      failback                    immediate
      fast_io_fail_tmo            5 
      dev_loss_tmo                30
      detect_prio                 no
      retain_attached_hw_handler “no”
      hardware_handler            0
   This configuration will enable the ALUA feature by default ,could you please help us to achieve that.
