Re: [dm-devel] Re: Problem with Multipath on Hitachi DF600F (Stefan Bader)

Thanks. I installed pp_hds_modular v2.00 and updated multipath.conf to use the queue_if_no_path option.

I'm not using Qlogic hba's, but Emulex LPe11000-S instead. Could this be part of the problem?

Btw, multipath -ll reported the failed path as back online before the second controller on the DF600 was taken offline. We also have a Solaris 9 machine running storage foundation with dmp connected to the df600 and it didn't have any issues. The sf dmp took longer to detect the path was back online, so we waited longer for it to enable the path before taking the second controller offline.

Sometimes it happens that both pathes to a SAN LUN are not available for
a short time. Because it is not possible to enable any timeouts inside
the HBA driver (QLogic) you have to handle this situation a layer above.
You can do it with the DM Multipath feature "queue_if_no_path".

I have upgraded the HDS prioritizer to version 2.00. You will find all
the stuff on:
