Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827072
Deprecated tag used in sample multipath.conf file
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:02:50 EST
Description of problem:
The sample file "/usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9/multipath.conf"
contains a deprecated tag in the defaults section...
# udev_dir /dev
# polling_interval 10
====> # selector "round-robin 0" <=======
In RHEL6 I beleve it should be "path_selector" instead. The following error results when using this configuration.
"[root@rhev-h4 ~]# multipath
May 31 14:35:17 | multipath.conf line 29, invalid keyword: selector"
Changing this to path_selector as per the man page solves this.
I had a customer run into this problem when using the sample file
as a basis for a new configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy /usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9/multipath.conf to /etc
2.Uncomment defaults section
3.run "multipath command"
