Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 711970
path_selector in multipathd default configure is 'selector'
Last modified: 2012-02-21 01:35:00 EST
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):
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.
multipathd are providing different name for path_selector in configuration.
multipathd using the same name of it. For back compatibility, we may still support selector keyword.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7 and Red Hat does not plan to fix this issue the currently developed update.
Contact your manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.
Both "selector" and "path_selector" will now work.
"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.
