Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Previous versions of multipath stored path binding data directly in either /etc or the /var/lib directories. Recent versions have moved this to the subdirectory /etc/multipath to allow more consistent SELinux labelling of multipath files. Consequence: Previous versions of sos did not capture the files now stored in this location. Fix: The devicemapper module has been extended to also include the /etc/multipath directory contents. Result: Full bindings data is now captured on hosts using the new directory layout.

Description Bryn M. Reeves 2012-04-27 12:42:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The /etc/multipath directory has been made the official blessed home of the bindings file (and possibly other multipath-specific configuration in the future).
