multipath -t report the error queue_without_daemon value
Last modified: 2015-01-26 19:11:50 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
# multipathd forcequeueing daemon
# multipathd show config > /opt/1
# multipath -t > /opt/2
# diff /opt/1 /opt/2
< queue_without_daemon "forced"
> queue_without_daemon "no"
multipath -t report the previous queue_without_daemon value
Since you're manually setting the state of the daemon, it's going to be different than the configuration file. There is no way for the multipath command to know that you did this. Also, there is no reason for it to really care. queue_without_daemon "no" simply turns queuing off when the multipathd daemon exist. The multipath command never checks the queue_without_daemon value except to print it with -t. Thus, it's perfectly safe for it to not know that you manually overrode the configuration on the daemon.
