[dm-devel] paths scsi names persistence after rescan



hi all,

i've configured multipath on a linux box and i'm getting these messages on 
syslog:

May 30 10:50:05 mail-1 udevd-work[25148]: rename(/dev/disk/by-
id/wwn-0x6006016052b022002e770b609680e011.udev-tmp, /dev/disk/by-
id/wwn-0x6006016052b022002e770b609680e011) failed: No such file or directory

and sometimes after a path failure,  the different paths get different scsi 
names, /proc/partitions shows in that case:

   8       16  838860800 sdb
   8       32  849582720 sdc
   8       80  838860800 sdf
   8       96  849582720 sdg
 252        3  849582720 dm-3
 252        4  838860800 dm-4
   8      208  838860800 sdn
   8      224  849582720 sdo
  65        0  849582720 sdq
   8      240  838860800 sdp

and then multipath gets crazy:

May 25 12:26:51 mail-1 multipathd: sdh: emc_clariion_checker: sending query 
command failed
...

i guess i should tell udev to asign persistant names using uuid? what's the 
right way to address this problem?

this is my config:

root mail-1:~# multipath -ll

}

thanks in advance!
