Description Subhendu Ghosh 2008-02-12 11:12:54 EST
Description of problem: 

Currently there is no way to provide specific ownership information (uid/gid)
for multipath devices. Some applications like Oracle ASM like to have complete
ownership of the raw devices.  If these devices are multipathed, it requires a
kludged rc script to change ownership on the devices after multipath is active
but before the application is started up.

udev rules cannot be used effectively in this situation.

Comment 2 Ben Marzinski 2009-07-29 21:41:25 EDT
multipath.conf now allows uid, gid, and mode options.
