Description of problem:
Multipath userland tool depends on libsysfs. As this library is located in /usr/lib, and /usr not being mounted in early statup phases, multipath cannot start and prepare multipath devices appropriatelly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Reboot the system
Expected Results: multipath shpuld have worked
Problem is solved with following commands:
# cp /usr/lib/libsysfs.so.1.0.2 .
# ln -s libsysfs.so.1.0.2 libsysfs.so.1
# ln -s libsysfs.so.1.0.2 libsysfs.so
how are you using multipath during bootup?
Are you just trying to multipath your rootfs?
If so, how did you build your initrd?
Are you using any additional scripts during startup with multipath?
If so, you should use /sbin/multipath.static instead.
Closing, based on lack of response to the bug for over a year now.
