RE: [dm-devel] multipathd dies at startup




Thanks for the reply.  Just for the record it is now fixed.  Here is what
happened:

Tested on Centos 5.1 i368: multipathd died reliably
Tested on Centos 5.1 x86_64:  works like a charm

And then it turns out that Centos 5.2 came down the line just last night for
me, so I updated and now multipathd works for me in both i386 and x86_64.

Again, thanks for the help.

Hi,
Having recently hit the same issue, it was a SELinux problem in my case.
Try: setenforce 0 ; service multipathd restart

See if it works for you. I also remember seeing a fix from RHEL/CentOS 
regarding this.

Thanks,
Finnur
