[dm-devel] two paths remain failed on DS6800 after code upgrade



Hello,
I have a test server connected to an IBM DS6800 storage.
It is a blade bl480c with two qlogic hbas, connected to 2 fc-switches.
RH EL 4.6 x86_64 installed (kernel 2.6.9-67.ELsmp)
device-mapper-1.02.21-1.el4
device-mapper-multipath-0.4.5-27.RHEL4

In boot messages I have for the hbas:
qla2400 0000:0c:00.0: Found an ISP2432, irq 185, iobase 0xffffff000001c000
QLogic Fibre Channel HBA Driver: 8.01.07-d4
QLogic QMH2462 - SBUS to 2Gb FC, Dual Channel
ISP2432: PCIe (2.5Gb/s x4) @ 0000:0c:00.0 hdma+, host#=0, fw=4.00.150 [IP]
Vendor: IBM       Model: 1750500           Rev: .155
Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 05

On the storage I have access to two luns, so that in total I get 8 paths and disks from sda to sdh.
In multipath I'm using default os install config for ds6800 (storage 1750500)
so it should be:
#      device {
#               vendor                  "IBM"
#               product                 "1750500"
#               path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
#               getuid_callout          "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s"
#               prio_callout            "/sbin/mpath_prio_alua %d"
#               features                "1 queue_if_no_path"
#               path_checker            tur
#       }

In normal operation the command "multipath -ll" gives:

[root test-rhel-p ~]# multipath -ll

mpath1 (3600507630efe05800000000000001700)

We had a code update for the storage, and so I wanted to test the multipath behaviour.
It was made in concurrent mode.
I get a first path-change whithout problems, probably when fisrt controller was updated.

mpath1:

\_ round-robin 0 [enabled]

     \_ 0:0:0:1 sdb 8:16  [failed]

     \_ 1:0:0:1 sdf 8:80  [failed]

and
mpath0:

\_ round-robin 0 [enabled]

     \_ 0:0:0:0 sda 8:0   [failed]

     \_ 1:0:0:0 sde 8:64  [failed]

while the other two path group remained active.
At the end of upgrade, probably with the second controller update, I get the situation below.
while other servers with windows and Linux (using sdd) came back with all paths, this server retains two paths in failed state:

[root test-rhel-p RPMS]# multipath -l

mpath1 (3600507630efe05800000000000001700)

\_ round-robin 0 [enabled]

 \_ 0:0:0:1 sdb 8:16  [active]

 \_ 1:0:0:1 sdf 8:80  [active]

 

mpath0 (3600507630efe05800000000000001600)

\_ round-robin 0 [enabled]

 \_ 0:0:1:0 sdc 8:32  [failed][faulty]

 \_ 1:0:1:0 sdg 8:96  [active]


with messages every 5 seconds of type:

Any help to get up the paths?
Could it help a scsi rescan? What should be the correct command in this case?
The system is operational and without interruption on disk acces for the users, but I don't understand why the paths don't come up again...

Thanks in advance for help or suggestions.
