You are using the wrong path checker, wrong path priority program,
and no hardware path checker :-(

Here is what you need in your multipath.conf file:

 #   
    # DELL :D3000i :: Active-Passive RDAC
    # Note: The same as the IBM DS3300
    #   
    device {
        vendor          "DELL"
        product         "MD3000i"
        product_blacklist   "Universal Xport"
        features        "1 queue_if_no_path"
        path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
        hardware_handler    "1 rdac"
        path_checker        rdac
        prio            "rdac"
        failback        immediate
    }   


Thought you might need to replace the 'prio	"rdac"' with
'prio_callout	"/sbin/mpath_prio_rdac" as I think RHEL5/CentOS5 uses
the old calling convention.

This should get rid of your down errors and show your passive/active path
properly.
