AW: [dm-devel] dm-0



No, the /dev/dm* devices are recreated every reboot.
Only the wwids in /dev/mapper/ are persistant. (/dev/disk/by-name/<wwid>)
Use them for mountpoint in the fstab. 

/dev/disk/by-name/data1 /usr/sap reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2

You can alias the horrible wwid by logical names in the multipath.conf.
E.g.

multipaths {
        multipath
        {
                #mountpoint /data
                wwid 360060160403219007aa7b461c917db11
                alias data
        }
}
This will create an link /dev/mapper/data1 -> /dev/dm-<actualNumber>

Take a look at the boot.multipath script.

*snip*
# Clear /dev/disk/by-name/ prior to start-up; multipath will
        # recreate them.
        rm -f /dev/disk/by-name/* 2>&1 >/dev/null
*snap*

Manuel
