Because there is no Nimble Storage in our lab, could you help provide test result once the package is available?
Multipath now supports an optional extension to the reservation_key parameter. You can now set reservation_key to "<key>:aptpl". This will inform multipathd to set the APTPL bit when registering keys on paths, when they come back up. For this to work correctly, you must also set --param-aptpl when using mpathpersist to register the key. If you set reservation_key to "file", multipath will automatically track which devices need the APTPL bit set by multipathd, depending on which devices you register keys with using the --param-aptpl option
Could you test if the new option works well on Nimble Storage?
Thanks in advance!
