Description Gris Ge 2011-06-09 03:06:41 EDT
Description of problem:
We have this line in defaults section of multipathd default configuration;
selector "round-robin 0"
But, in device sections, we are using this one:
path_selector "round-robin 0"

Base on my assumption, they are the same, but they might confuse our customer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service multipathd start
2. multipathd -k'show config'
3. Check the selector in defaults section and path_selector in devices section.
Actual results:
multipathd are providing different name for path_selector in configuration.

Expected results:
multipathd using the same name of it. For back compatibility, we may still support selector keyword.

Comment 4 Ben Marzinski 2011-10-11 18:56:18 EDT
Both "selector" and "path_selector" will now work.
Comment 6 Gris Ge 2012-01-11 02:16:31 EST
"show config" output of multipathd are providing "path_selector" now in device-mapper-multipath-0.4.7-48.el5 

"selector" keyword are still functionally. RHEL 5 only has 1 selector - "round-robin 0", no future test needed.
