Description Gris Ge 2011-08-04 07:47:52 UTC
Description of problem:

Anaconda don't support these following options for multipath devices:
ignoredisk --only-use=/dev/disk/by-id/dm-uuid-mpath-20090ef1270000000
ignoredisk --only-use=/dev/mapper/mpatha
ignoredisk --only-use=mapper/mpatha

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.1 GA.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add above options in kickstart file,
1. For beaker system, add these into job.xml
ignoredisk --only-use=mpatha
3. Check wether OS installed correctly.
Actual results:
anaconda cannot find the multipath.

Expected results:
Anaconda should support multipath in "ignoredisk --only-use" options.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Gris Ge 2011-08-04 08:03:45 UTC
I also tried "ignoredisk --only-use=mpatha", same issue.

"ignoredisk --only-use=sda" works well on other server via beaker job.xml.

Comment 2 Ales Kozumplik 2011-08-04 14:08:38 UTC
Closing this as dup. The need to target multipath devices in various ways emerged and has been dealt with in bug 677263 and bug 696876.
