[dm-devel] rdac mode on SLES10SP1




Hello,


Could you advise me on next matter.
We have DS4800 connected to SLES10&9. At the moment we're using 'native' IBM  rdac driver but we're going to soon jump to Linux mpio.
According to Novell's support site in SP1(with kernel 2.6.16)  MPIO would be supported by in rdac mode.

patches.fixes/dm-mpath-rdac.patch: dm-multipath hardware handler for LSI/Engenio RDAC (FATE 300540).

However, here I found  that it should happened only with 2.6.23 kernel.

If you are using it in rdac mode, then you have to wait.
> Any idea when that should be? Or are there any kernel patches
Usually they are released within 2-3 months of the last release. 2.6.22
was released on Jul 8th. So, it should be somewhere between Sep 8th and
Oct 8th

Could someone clarify the situation. Support  SLES10SP1 already rdac mode or I should wait until SUSE new release ?

Regards,

Kirill
