Re: [dm-devel] configure MD3000



To my knowledge DELL DB3000 is a rdac based storage. Hence, you need to
add a special device stanza to /etc/multipath.conf file.
--------
devices {
        device {
                vendor                  "DELL"
                product                 "MD3000"
                hardware_handler        "1 rdac"
                path_checker            rdac
                failback                immediate
                path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
                no_path_retry           queue
                prio_callout            "/sbin/mpath_prio_tpc /dev/%n"
        }
}
---------
Make the change, run "multipath -F" followed by "multipath" for the
change to affect your configuration.

What is your distro (RHEL or SLES) and what is the version ?
For SLES you need to replace the prio_callout line by
		prio			rdac
