Description of problem:
I have to keep Simple storage selected to install an OS on HP MSA2000 based storage. This storage is FC attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6.0-20100506.3 but has been a problem at least as far back as distros from early march.

scratch that ... #4 is with simple storage
I do know that 2 months when I played with Advanced, my MSA storage LUNS didn't show up on the list. I will have to try Advanced tomorrow.

storage.log from advanced selection
I have other logs as well.
But I was surprised to find the MSA storage reported in both Simple and Advanced.
I take it all your multipath devices are showing up in both the simple storage UI and in the advanced storage UI, right? Which tab on the advanced storage UI are they showing up in? Hopefully, the multipath tab.
I may need to come down and check this out in person tomorrow or Friday.
pjones has patches on anaconda-maint-list that have been tested and make this work.
Could we get a QA ack on this bug? It's tested, approved, and ready to go.
which system has this kind of storage? I wasn't able to find one in Beaker. Can you give QE access to the system or test again with snapshot #7 (snap #8 has bug #615936 when selecting Advanced storage).
Im not free to give up my machine, I will test snap 7.
setting needinfo from your for tracking purposes. Please provide test results when you finish testing snap #7 or newer snapshot.
Actually tested RHEL6.0-20100722.0 and verified through the gui install that advanced device discovery shows the the correct luns in the correct tabs .. ie simple/advanced. Of course I looked in the one that had SAN on it and when it wasnt there realized it was in multipath devices ...
So thumbs up.
