Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165866
Add Invista to RHEL 3 SCSI Whitelist
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:08 EST
EMC requests this for U6, because it is for a new product that will ship before
U7 comes out.
The patch is a simple addition to the SCSI whitelist. There is virtually no
risk. Without the patch customers who install the Invista hardware on a SAN must
ensure that the all the RHEL 3 systems see LUNs that are numbered sequentially
starting with zero. This is difficult in a large shared SAN environment. RHEL 3
does not offer a run-time workaround for this (as RHEL 4 does).
Maybe this falls under the "addressing committed hardware support" criteria for
post-beta checkins, since this will ship during U6? It is extremely low risk
and will not invalidate any beta testing.

Very Low risk / high return.
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-35.EL).
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
