mkraid: a maximum of 27 devices in a set is supported
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:07 EST
* RHEL3 U4 s390x AS
* nfs vnc GUI install with > 27 RAID partitions
* / on RAID0 with 32 RAID partitions
when going to package installation phase, the installer gives a dialog:
"An error occurred trying to format md0. This problem is serious and the install cannot continue."
Then the install dies ... on the 3270 console, some output is observed:
> dasdp:VOL1/ 0X330B: dasdp1
> dasds:VOL1/ 0X340A: dasds1
> dasdr:VOL1/ 0X3409: dasdr1
> a maximum of 27 devices in a set is supported
> detected error on line 61:
> ] device] /tmp/dasdv1
> mkraid: aborted.
You can only have 27 members for a RAID device based on the format of the RAID
superblock. Added error checking for this to HEAD, probably won't backport
unless it becomes something a customer is hitting.
