Description Thomas Haeberlin 2005-12-07 07:49:44 EST
Description of problem:

rc.sysinit uses multipath instead of multipath.static. If the /usr is a 
seperate filesystem, initialization of multipathing devices fails because of 
missing libraries (/usr/lib64/libsysfs.*).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create /usr filesystem
2.create multipath-device configuration

Actual results:
multipath-devices are not available after reboot.

Expected results:
multipath-devices available after reboot

Additional info:
should use multipath.static in /etc/rc.sysinit

1. replace multipath with multipath.static in /etc/rc.sysinit
2. copy /usr/lib64/libsysfs.* to /lib64 && ldconfig
