Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457427
pvcreate incorrect (RHEL 4.6) in Using Device Mapper Multipath document
Last modified: 2009-08-19 23:29:13 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #452876 +++
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"

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. :-)

reassigning to Steven Levine.
I have corrected the pvcreate example and added new information related to the
kBase article to the 4.6 version of the document. I have requested that this
document be pushed out to the docs web page with RT 26342.
The updated version of the document with the fix in place is now on the docs web page for the RHEL 4.6. version.
