Description Bastien Nocera 2005-11-23 14:58:14 UTC
To use the persistent binding (to map a fabric address to a specific target/LUN)
with RHEL3, one would use the ql2xopts of the QLogic module. It's not available
in RHEL4:
Oct 31 10:51:20 test kernel: qla2xxx: Unknown parameter `ql2xopts'

Comment 2 Tom Coughlan 2005-12-09 21:00:59 UTC
In the 2.6 kernel, persistent bunding is moved out of the individual device
drivers and into udev. Unfortunately, this is still something of a work in
progress. 

This issue is covered in BZ 157082, where a solution was recently posted.  I
will close this as a duplicate. If that is not appropriate for some reason, then
re-open it.
