Description Karel Zak 2010-12-16 12:12:16 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #649572 +++

Description of problem:

multipath device does not show as /dev/mapper/mpathN in sfdisk -d
Even /dev/dm-N and /dev/mapper/mapthN are indentical in major:miner way.
But as document say, we suggest user to use /dev/mapper/mpathN instead of /dev/dm-N

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.5 with device-mapper-multipath upgrade to 0.4.7-39.el5

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a multipath enviroment.
2. sfdisk -d
Actual results:
sfdisk use /dev/dm-N to indicate the multipath device

Expected results:
sfdisk use /dev/mapper/mpathN to indicate the multipath device.
