[RFE] Include mpath_prio_hp_sw in device-mapper-multipath
Last modified: 2010-10-22 19:20:11 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #434988 +++
Description of problem:
RHEL4.7 is scheduled to support the kernel hardware handler for the HP MSA/HSV
active/passive storage controllers (bug 195685). 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.
Working on this now.

power glitches of the lab its in...

patch to rhel4 spec file
I did not actually test this

Updated patch that includes "make install"
I looked at the spec file and all it does is a "make install" so the patch in #7
should be the full fix.
