RE: [dm-devel] failover does not work with rdac device handler



Hi,

I need help with a similar or even the same issue as in the thread mentioned in the Subject (https://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2008-October/msg00130.html).

On two PowerEdge 2970 with CentOS 5.3 connected to a MD3000i I get the following messages in /var/log/messages

The following additional information can I provide.

[root ninja redhat]# multipath -ll

The multipath version shipped with CentOS 5.3 is multipath-tools v0.4.7 (03/12, 2006).

As I've seen in the mentioned thread something like

echo rdac > /sys/block/sd?/device/dh_state

should fix at least the failover problem.

But I do not see any dh_state in /sys/block/sd?/device/ and I'm not allowed (even as root) to do anything like:

for i in c d e f; do echo rdac > /sys/block/sd$i/device/dh_state; done

At the moment I'd like to avoid building the multipath package by myself with the patch provided in the afore mentioned thread.

Do you have any ideas? Or is a different problem I have.

Every help is appreciated.

All best

Mario
