Don't know where this is coming form. Do you have IBM's MPP
multipathing driver installed? If you are using device-mapper
multipath and multipath tools (the rest of your mail suggests this is
your intention) you should not load the MPP modules.


Hi

Thank you for the information.

I think the MPP driver came from the 
linuxrdac-09.03.0C06.0030-1dkms rpm package
installed from the Dell MD3000i Resource CD,
because the top of the Makefile in /usr/src/linuxrdac-09.03.0C06.0030 reads:

#**********************************************************************
# Makefile for Linux RDAC (MPP) Driver
#
# This is a modified version of the linuxrdac Makefile provided by LSI
# (renamed to Makefile_orig).
# It is dkms compatable, and provides:
#    genuniqueid, mppUtil, install, uninstall
# The mppUpper and mppVhba targets are provided by dkms through obj-m
#

It was maybe installed when I choose this option 3 from the installer on that CD:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


   ################################################################

                  Dell PowerVault MD3000i Resource CD

   ################################################################

 1. View MD3000i Readme
 2. Install MD3000i Storage Manager
 3. Install Multi-pathing Driver
 4. MD3000i Configuration Utility
 5. Dell Support
 6. View End User License Agreement

 Enter the number to select a component from the above list.
 Enter q to quit.

 Enter: 3

Is mpp another type of rdac driver than the one in question here ?


Thank you
Christian
