Description Bryn M. Reeves 2008-03-18 15:21:44 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # rpm -ql device-mapper-multipath | grep mpath_prio_hp_sw
Actual results:
No path prioritiser for these SANs.

Expected results:

Working on this now.
Comment 3 Dave Wysochanski 2008-04-11 12:14:48 EDT
For some reason my reliable test machine is now sporting a machine check on CPU0
and I cannot get it to boot.  Perhaps it has succumbed to the repeated on-off
power glitches of the lab its in...

Updated patch that includes "make install"
Comment 8 Dave Wysochanski 2008-04-15 11:04:11 EDT
I looked at the spec file and all it does is a "make install" so the patch in #7
should be the full fix.
