Description Lukasz Dorau 2012-11-28 10:10:15 UTC
Description of problem:
The Intel Matrix Storage Manager optional ROM (IMSM OpROM) does not support RAID volumes on more than one controller, so creating IMSM RAID volume on more than one controller can cause data loss and has to be forbidden.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- 3.2.6-1.fc18

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an IMSM RAID volume (on platform with IMSM OpROM) using drives connected to two different AHCI or two different SCU controllers.
2. Reboot OS
  
Actual results:
An IMSM RAID volume on more than one controller is created. After reboot of OS the volume is degraded or failed by OpROM.

Expected results:
Creating an IMSM RAID volume on more than one controller is forbidden.

Additional info:
The following patch fixes this bug:
imsm: Forbid spanning between multiple controllers.
