[dm-devel] Why it can not support more than 100 targets in 1 MD ?



Hello,

Sorry for my poor English. I'm having trouble with device-mapper and need your help.

I create a MD having 100 targets with dmsetup. IO error occurs when I access the 100th target. My operation steps are :

1.#create md
sh> dmsetup create vd1 dmtable1

2.
#access the 100th target
sh> dd bs=512 count=10 if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mapper/vd1 seek=51380224

#errors happen
dd: writing `/dev/mapper/vd1': Input/output error
1+0 records in
0+0 records out

If I only have 99 targets in dmtable1, everything is OK when I access the 99th target. Why? If device-mapper can support more than 100 targets in 1 MD ?

The content of dmtable1 is:
