Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 0/3][RESEND]multipath-tools: mpathpersist utility for managing persistent reservation on dm multipath device.



Vijay,

I guess you are not understanding what I am saying.

1. mpathpersist does not work as expected

here is an output of mpathpersist vs sg_persist

[root rhc-node3 ~]# mpathpersist -d /dev/mapper/blah --in --read-full-status
Persistent Reserve IN command failed
[root rhc-node3 ~]# sg_persist -d /dev/mapper/blah --in --read-full-status
  QNAP      iSCSI Storage     3.1
  Peripheral device type: disk
  PR generation=0xc
    Key=0x123abc
      All target ports bit clear
      Relative port address: 0x1
      not reservation holder
      Transport Id of initiator:
        iSCSI name and session id: iqn.2009-11.com.adriaticsolutions:blah
    Key=0x123abc
      All target ports bit clear
      Relative port address: 0x1
      << Reservation holder >>
      scope: LU_SCOPE,  type: Exclusive Access, all registrants
      Transport Id of initiator:
        iSCSI name and session id: iqn.2009-11.com.adriaticsolutions:blah


 2. DID_BAD_TARGET host status is because I have reserved my multipathed
lun and now one of the paths is in a failed state, so mpathpersist is
failing on that path. read 4 examples below....

mpathpersist -d /dev/mapper/blah --in --read-reservation
Persistent Reserve IN command failed

sg_persist -d /dev/mapper/blah --in --read-reservation
  QNAP      iSCSI Storage     3.1
  Peripheral device type: disk
  PR generation=0xd, Reservation follows:
    Key=0x0
    scope: LU_SCOPE,  type: Exclusive Access, all registrants

sg_persist -d /dev/sda --in --read-reservation
  QNAP      iSCSI Storage     3.1
  Peripheral device type: disk
  PR generation=0xd, Reservation follows:
    Key=0x0
    scope: LU_SCOPE,  type: Exclusive Access, all registrants

sg_persist -d /dev/sdb --in --read-reservation
  QNAP      iSCSI Storage     3.1
  Peripheral device type: disk
persistent reservation in: transport: Host_status=0x11 is invalid
Driver_status=0x00 [DRIVER_OK, SUGGEST_OK]

PR in: command failed
