Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 475177
Multipath support for root partition on CCISS devices
Last modified: 2010-05-12 13:58:02 EDT
Description of problem:
The mpath devices are not created for cciss devices. Due to this the multipath support for the root partition on CCISS devices is not available.
Providing the "mpath" kernel parameter at the installation prompt fails to create the multipath devices for the CCISS devices.
To include a patch to installation binary, to create the device mapper multipath devices for CCISS devices.
Is there any update on this issue?
Any updates on this? Has this been fixed in RHEL5.4 beta?
Is the lack of cciss devices due to bz #484419?
That's one of the blockers but there are probably other changes needed in mkinitrd and maybe anaconda (afaik cciss still needs a separate cciss_id WWID callout).
the device-mapper-multipath package already provides a cciss_id callout.
Unless someone has a specific reason why we need this bugzilla, I'm going to close it as a dup of bz #484419.
I'm closing this as a dup of 484419. If there are specific device-mapper-multipath problems with cciss devices, feel free to reopen this bug with a comment explaining them.
