Description of problem:

This is ia follow up to BZ 226791 but the problem is specifically related to
aliases so I opened this BZ. This will make it easy to seach for alias related
issues.

My multipath.conf file has the aliases defined for 4 devices but only 2 aliases
are created and the other 2 devices get the user_friendly_names

[root@perf6 mpath]# cd /dev/mpath/
[root@perf6 mpath]# pwd
/dev/mpath
[root@perf6 mpath]# ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Feb  1 19:43 mpath4 -> ../dm-4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Feb  1 19:43 mpath5 -> ../dm-5
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Feb  1 19:42 oramp1 -> ../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Feb  1 19:42 oramp2 -> ../dm-3

As you can see, 2 of the devices have the alias names and other 2 have user
friendly names



[root@perf6 ~]# cat /etc/multipath.conf

# This is an example configuration file for device mapper multipath.

## The wwid line in the following blacklist section is shown as an example
## of how to blacklist devices by wwid.  The 3 devnode lines are the
## compiled in default blacklist. If you want to blacklist entire types
## of devices, such as all scsi devices, you should use a devnode line.
## However, if you want to blacklist specific devices, you should use
## a wwid line.  Since there is no guarantee that a specific device will
## not change names on reboot (from /dev/sda to /dev/sdb for example)
## devnode lines are not recommended for blacklisting specific devices.

The wwid of the 4 devices have also been listed below to rule out the
possibility of wrong wwids entered in the conf file.
