Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2010:0541 normal SHIPPED_LIVE mkinitrd bug fix update 2010-07-20 14:07:42 UTC

Description RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-05-26 11:47:25 UTC
This bug has been copied from bug #593050 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.5 z-stream (EUS).

Comment 9 Alexander Todorov 2010-07-20 10:34:49 UTC
With mkinitrd-5.1.19.6-61.el5_5.2 and /etc/multipath.conf looking like:

defaults {
        user_friendly_names yes
        bindings_file /etc/multipath/bindings
}

The resulting initrd.img  contains the correct bindings file:

# zcat test.img | cpio -t | grep multi
30204 blocks
bin/multipath
etc/multipath
etc/multipath/bindings
etc/multipath.conf

NOTE: The "=" character ( as in bindings_file = ... ) from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=593050#c0 is incorrect syntax. All example conf files from the device-mapper-multipath package show "bindings_file /path/to/file" syntax.


Moving to VERIFIED.
