Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 840471
Documentation for "Online Storage Reconfiguration Guide" references an old rescan-scsi-bus.sh issue already solved
Last modified: 2015-07-26 18:10:42 EDT
Description of problem:
We state the following in the "Online Storage Reconfiguration Guide" in section 15, subsection "Known Issues With rescan-scsi-bus.sh":
"In order for rescan-scsi-bus.sh to work properly, LUN0 must be the first mapped logical unit. The rescan-scsi-bus.sh can only detect the first mapped logical unit if it is LUN0. The rescan-scsi-bus.sh will not be able to scan any other logical unit unless it detects the first mapped logical unit even if you use the --nooptscan option. "
But this is not true anymore, as per comment 6 in BZ#52964:
"I validated this scenario using "sg3_utils-1.25-5.el5" available with RHEL 5.6 Beta (2.6.18-229.el5)bv. The LUNs get detected even without LUN0 being mapped to host."
So the statement above in the guide is not current anymore, and this issue has been correctly resolved.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This bug/component is not included in scope for RHEL-5.11.0 which is the last RHEL5 minor release. This Bugzilla will soon be CLOSED as WONTFIX (at the end of RHEL5.11 development phase (Apr 22, 2014)). Please contact your account manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.
I don't know why this was nacked as it should not have been. Opening it again for 5.11.
I need to comment out the paragraph stated in comment 0 as it is no longer current.
