Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452876
pvcreate incorrect (RHEL 5.1) in Using Device Mapper Multipath document
Last modified: 2009-08-19 23:49:24 EDT
Description of problem:
The "Using Device-Mapper Multipath 5.1 Configuration and Administration"
manual says to run pvcreate with /dev/mpath/mpath0 Chapter 2, section
4, page 8.
This should be changed to /dev/mapper/mpath0. The reasons are outlined in this
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
"Using Device-Mapper Multipath 5.1 Configuration and Administration"
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested

inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
can you give me a link to the book in question? I assume it's posted on
www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise? That way I can assign this bug to the
correct person. :-)
Oops, sorry forgot that.
reassigning to Steven Levine.
I have corrected the pvcreate example and added the information from the kBase
article about device locations to the 5.1 version of the manual. I have
requested that the corrected 5.1 version of the manual be pushed out to the docs
web site, with RT 26342.
No rpm package associated with this. Will push to redhat.com/docs
