Description of problem:
I cannot find a similar issue on bugzilla. Perhaps it's related to bug #167291.
Sorry if it's duplicated.
On a system with RHEL4-U4 and a lot of scsi devices the block device /dev/sdbm
that has major 68 and minor 0 isn't created (noticed because multipath -l
reports only 3 paths instead of 4). Looking at /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
this major is forced to be called capi20:
[root@itradedb03c ~]# udevinfo -q all -p /block/sdbm
Removing this line fixed it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The system was just installed didn't rebooted. But I think it'll always happen.
/dev/sdbm (the block device that has major 68 and minor 0 isn't created because
overrided by /dev/capi20)
