Description Thomas von Steiger 2007-03-21 11:25:52 EDT
Description of problem:
We have a SAN Storage only Environment in our Blade platform.
For this we need to boot with multipath support.
We have done the same with RHEl3 and RHEL4.
Now we need to setup multipath boot for RHEL5 bevor we can start with RHEL5.
For this we have write a patch. The Problem now, we can not write the initrd.img
becose /sbin/scsi_id.static is missing in udev rpm. /sbin/scsi_id.static is only
to map scsi id to a alias name (/etc/multipatch.conf) at boot time.

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

How reproducible:
Install udev-095-14.5.el5

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Kickstart Server
2. Rebuild to Full Multipath Support
Actual results:
Boot with alias Name from multipath device failed. --> Kernel Panic

Expected results:
Success Boot with RHEL5 from multipath Device.

Additional info:
To fix add /sbin/scsi_id.static to udev rpm.
Comment 1 Thomas von Steiger 2007-03-21 11:41:26 EDT
I forgotte somthing:

In /etc/multipath.conf there is by default:
getuid_callout          "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"

For exactly this we need a static version of scsi_id to add this tool to initrd.img.

Comment 2 Bryn M. Reeves 2007-04-12 12:58:33 EDT
Please see the ChangeLog for udev:

* Fri Nov 11 2005 Harald Hoyer <harald@redhat.com> - 075-2
- moved /etc/udev/scripts to /lib/udev
- moved /etc/udev/devices to /lib/udev/devices
- added new event replay for kernel >= 2.6.15
- added usb devices
- renamed cpu device to cpuid (bug #161538)
- changed vendor string "Onstream" to "On[sS]tream" (bug #173043)
- compiled all *_id programs statically

So, from udev-075-2, all the *_id programs /should/ be statically linked and the
separate .static versions go away, meaning that scripts no longer have to care
which versions they should be calling.

Right now there is a bug in the spec file that causes this not to work right,
meaning that currently only vol_id is getting statically linked.

See bug 236242 for more information.
