Re: [dm-devel] EMC CX LUN problem [SOLVED]



Finally I solved my problem, the gulty was scsi_id, I install CentOS and scsi_id works as expected reporting different uuid for each lun

this is my final situation:

[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdb
36006016086f01600bc80c9afbc8dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdc
36006016086f01600463513d9978dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdd
36006016086f01600bc80c9afbc8dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sde
36006016086f01600463513d9978dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdf
36006016086f01600bc80c9afbc8dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdg
36006016086f01600463513d9978dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdh
36006016086f01600bc80c9afbc8dda11
[root server1 block]# scsi_id -g -u -s /block/sdi
36006016086f01600463513d9978dda11

scsi_id is broken in gentoo and ubuntu, at least for this setup infact I have a working multipath setup using gentoo with some minor difference in hardware equipment,

thanks to all,

Hi,

I'm trying to configure a new emc cx storage, I have the following:

2 server, each server has a qla2462 dual port hba
each qla2462 is connected to a switch (only one switch)
1 emc cx storage with 4 path connected to the switch

I defined two lun on the storage however I'm able to see only one LUN

multipath -l show the following:

i could be off in the weeds here, but this output looks wrong.  the
host:channel:target:lun numbers listed there suggest your cx is indeed
surfacing luns 0 and 1, but multipath is grouping them under a single
target ID.

Maybe you are right! I added another LUN and this is multipath output

i think emc engineers monitor this list; perhaps they can help.
maybe the problem is scsi_id that report the same output for all block device,

I have kernel 2.6.16-rc1 on a server and 2.6.13.5 on the other one,

with 2.6.16-rc1
