RE: [dm-devel] i/o error due to all path failure with rdac



That is good to know. I will push the patch upstream.

BTW, Please be advised that you might see some unknown problems if you
use the multipath tools from mainline on your distro releases.

The library in distro releases and the tools in mainline may not be
totally compatible, which is the cause.

I would suggest you to use the tools from your distro itself. The kernel
changes for SCSI_DH should work with no changes to the tools (in your
distro). IOW, you do not need the latest multipath tools.
