Re: [dm-devel] RHEL 4.3 to Sun 6320 storage

Just to be awkward, one of our arrays (cab2a01) has mpxio (sun
speakexplicit) just now, the other (cab5a01) has rw (sun speak implicit
failover)

as this array is only used by 2 linux clients, I'm prepared to give it a
test...

Ta.

I'm still running on 2.6.9-34.107.plus.c4smp

Hmm. Stupid Q - are these somewhere in the git tree? if so a pointer
please.

This part was much more sucessful: well, apart from compiling up the
0.4.7 drivers over the device-mapper-multipath-0.4.5-12.0.RHEL4 RPM and
possibly confusing LVM2..

looks great! however... doesn't seem to set up the paths correctly -v3
shows me (snipped to show single tray)

it's that "domap (0) failure for create/reload map" that looks bad...

Have I  missed something ?
