Re: [linux-lvm] LVM Multi Path Support



Hi,

I have a related question.

I have just set up LVM on the LUNS from a HDS-9570 with a
qla-2300 driver in failover mode. This results in each
LUN being exposed to the operating system twice, once for
each controller. However when a controller fails the
card transparently maps the requests to the secondary
controller so that the original scsi target still works.

LVM appears to do the 'right thing for me' in that it recognises
that the the two PVs are one (I assume via the UUID) and ignore
the second LUN.

I'd like to know if this is just good luck, or if it's behaviour
I can rely ?

thanks
