Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432520
automatically assign specified uid/gid to /dev/mapper/XX devices
Last modified: 2009-07-30 00:40:37 EDT
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.
This is covered by bzs for other releases:
multipath.conf now allows uid, gid, and mode options.
should be able to close this bz then, thanks
