Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427640
/dev/disk/by-path symlinks broken for iSCSI targets
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:35:23 EST
Description of problem:
The /dev/disk/by-path symlink for iSCSI LUNs fails to include the lun number, so
all iSCSI luns from a particular target end up with the same clashing symlink.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to an iSCSI target which has multiple luns
2. Examine /dev/disk/by-path
Only a single link per target
# ls /dev/disk/by-path/
One link per LUN:
# ls /dev/disk/by-path/ip*
Works correctly on Fedora 8...

This patch is basically a diff of the /lib/udev/path_id between RHEL-5 and F-8
for the iSCSI bits. With this patch applied RHEL-5 operates correctly for iSCSI
