RE: [dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.4.1



Qlogic shouldn't be strung out. It wasn't them....

As part of a change that went into the FC transport - the device reported under this directory was moved from the LUN device to the Target device - thus the change in name format (it killed replication of target data that was being done for all luns). The attributes underneath remain the same. I believe this change occurred in the first rc1 patch to 2.6.9.

As to the grand plan - you should be fine if you :
 pre-2.6.10: it's the older name format "/sys/class/fc_transport/<host>:<channel>:<target>:<lun>"
 2.6.10 and later : it's the new format "/sys/class/fc_transport/target<host>:<channel>:<target>"

 and the folks running a patched 2.6.9 have to live by the new format.
