[dm-devel] Multipath target does not shift block offset?



Hi,

I've just been playing with the multipath dm target, and would like to create a single device mapper device consisting of several, concatenated, multipathed devices. The intuitive way to do this would be:

# HBA 2 failing to 3
0 286749488 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdd round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdl
286749488 286749488 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sde round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdm
573498976 286749488 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdf round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdn
<snip>


However, when one tries to set up such a device, we get the error message:

kernel: device-mapper: device /dev/sde too small for target

I would have assumed that the mapping specified above would map the whole (sector range 0-286749487) of the sde/sdm device into the range 286749488-573498975 of the dm device. However, dm appears to be trying to map the range 286749488-573498975 of the dm device to the same offsets in the sde/sdm device.

Is this what was intended?

Cheers,
Tim
