Description Wayne Berthiaume 2006-04-20 14:06:39 EDT
Description of problem:
EMC PowerPath reports DEAD paths during 10 second cable pulls when 
ConnFailTimeout has been set to 30 in /etc/iscsi.conf. If you 
cat /sys/class/scsi_host/hostX/connfail_timeout it is always 5.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set ConnFailTimeout to 30 in /etc/iscsi.conf
2. service iscsi restart
3. perform 10 second cable pulls
Actual results:
EMC PowerPath marks the paths as DEAD and tresspasses the LUNs

Expected results:
iscsi_sfnet should log the session failure but not but the path failure to EMC 
PowerPAth until after the 30 timer has expired. The result would be that EMC 
PowerPath does not mark the path as DEAD or perform the tresspass until after 
the 30 second timer has expired.

Additional info:
See attached syslog snipet of 10 second cable pull and path failures with 
ConnFailTimeout set to 30

Also, service iscsi debug no longer works so I am unable to provide driver 
debug information.The daemon and driver start; however, the driver fails to 
initialize and scan the bus.
