Re: [dm-devel] multipath-tools with STK FLEXLINE 380



                Do not use 'rr_weight=priorities'. The priorities
                handling is currently buggered; or, put it the other way
                round, you will need at least my latest fix to get it
                working. Just remove that line and stay with the
                defaults. That should work.
                
                And as a sidenote: Using 'group_by_prio' and
                'rr_weight=priorities' is completely pointless, even if
                'rr_weight=priorities' should be working.'group_by_prio'
                will lump all devices with the same priority into one
                group. And 'rr_weight=priorities' will then modify the
                'minio' based on the priority. So you can as well
                directly modify the 'minio'
                parameter.'rr_weight=priorities' only makes sense if you
                have path with different priorities in one group, ie
                when using 'multibus' or 'group_by_serial'.
                Cheers,

Hi Hannes,

thanks for the reply.

I've tried without "rr_weight=priorities" in my multipath.conf but it does not work either.
The only difference it makes is that "multipath -v3" now output : "rr_weight = 1 (internal default)"
instead of "rr_weight = 2 (config file default)".

I was thinking that "group_by_prio" is use to group together devices with differents
priorities, with the one with the highest priority first, is it wrong?

The output of "multipath -d -v2" seems to reflect this :

create: test1 (3600a0b8000119c20000002a445338779) STK,FLEXLINE 380

showing sda and sde (prio=3) always being first...

You're talking about your latest fix; is there a place where i can find new version of the
multipath-tools package for SLES 10?


Thanks again!
