[RFE] Include mpath_prio_hp_sw in device-mapper-multipath
Last modified: 2010-10-22 18:48:12 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL5 now supports the kernel hardware handler for the HP MSA/HSV active/passive
storage controllers. Upstream multipath-tools now has a path prioritiser for
these arrays as well.
This was merged in this commit:
"All paths from a controller with HP Active/Standby firmware
should really be grouped according to their status; otherwise
the path switching will not work properly or you can use only
one path to that array.
This patch adds a new priority checker 'mpath_hp_sw' which
will allow these paths to be grouped accordingly."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # rpm -ql device-mapper-multipath | grep mpath_prio_hp_sw
No path prioritiser for these SANs.
