[dm-devel] DM-Multipather with initialization probem ?




After setup of 40 vdisks, zoning of two switches, etc. and starting I/O I
did a goodpath-test with Redhat 5.1.
Everything worked fine. During running the failover test's the
dm-multipather didn't handle to re-establish
all paths correctly.

I tried running multipathd with "-v4" option for verbose logging. And
changed the
line "daemon $DAEMON" with "daemon $DAEMON -v4" in /etc/init.d/multipathd
file
and restarted the daemon by running "/etc/init.d/multipathd restart" again.

After that the failover worked fine, with and without the -v4 option.
In my setup this behavior is reproducible.
Could there be a connection with specifically starting the multipathd ?
