Description Stoo Davies 2005-09-02 18:06:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.9) Gecko/20050715 Firefox/1.0.5

Description of problem:
When multipath is run to discover multipathed devices and setup maps for them it only creates an entry under /dev/mapper for the disk device.  It doesn't create entries for the partitions on the disk.
Currently I'm adding these manually with kpartx, but it would be nice if it happened automatically when discovered.

I noticed that bug 160227 is similar, but the reply was about enhancements to initrd, I'm looking for enhancements after the boot, probably in udev?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Run multipath

Do you still need to use dos-style partitioning, or can you use LVM for this,
which should provide more flexibility?

Comment 2 Stoo Davies 2005-09-02 18:44:04 UTC
Unfortunately I need to use both.
