Re: [dm-devel] Installing RHEL with single controller



Ok; this is what I did:

mkinitrd   /boot/initrd.final.img   2.6.18-53.el5xen   --with=dm-multipath

Changed the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to point to new initrd image file.
Reboot is fine but multipath -ll is still null. :(

What am I missing here.

Regards,
Pradipmaya.
