I found this in an old thread and want to confirm as it will influence how/what we include in multipath.conf
Is the following order of preference accurate?
1) Multipaths section (in /etc/multipath.conf)
2) Device section (in /etc/multipath.conf)
3) Defaults section (in /etc/multipath.conf)
4) Internal default (hwtable.c)
If so; then inclusions in the default section; such as setting multibus as the path grouping policy; would adversely affect any active / passive array definitions in hwtable.c.
There really should be more guidance concerning these matters. Is this documented somewhere?
