Re: [linux-lvm] Lvm hangs on San fail



GoodMornings

This is what I have on multipath.conf

blacklist {
        wwid SSun_VOL0_266DCF4A
        wwid SSun_VOL0_5875CF4A
        devnode "^(ram|raw|loop|fd|md|dm-|sr|scd|st)[0-9]*"
        devnode "^hd[a-z]"
}
defaults {
                user_friendly_names             yes
}
devices {
       device {
                vendor                          "HITACHI"
                product                         "OPEN-V"
                path_grouping_policy            group_by_node_name
                failback                        immediate
                no_path_retry                   fail
       }
       device {
                vendor                          "IET"
                product                         "VIRTUAL-DISK"
                path_checker                    tur
                path_grouping_policy            failover
                failback                        immediate
                no_path_retry                   fail
       }
}

As an example this is one LUN. It shoes [features=0] so I'd say it should
fail right way

mpath-dc2-a (360060e8004f240000000f24000000502) dm-15 HITACHI,OPEN-V      -SU
[size=26G][features=0][hwhandler=0][rw]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=4][active]
 \_ 5:0:1:0     sdu  65:64  [active][ready]
 \_ 5:0:1:16384 sdac 65:192 [active][ready]
 \_ 5:0:1:32768 sdas 66:192 [active][ready]
 \_ 5:0:1:49152 sdba 67:64  [active][ready]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=4][enabled]
 \_ 3:0:1:0     sdaw 67:0   [active][ready]
 \_ 3:0:1:16384 sdbe 67:128 [active][ready]
 \_ 3:0:1:32768 sdbi 67:192 [active][ready]
 \_ 3:0:1:49152 sdbm 68:0   [active][ready]

It think they fail since I see this messages from LVM:
Apr 14 16:03:05 dc1-x6250-a lvm[15622]: Device failure in
vg_syb_roger-lv_syb_roger_admin
Apr 14 16:03:14 dc1-x6250-a lvm[15622]: Failed to remove faulty devices in
vg_syb_roger-lv_syb_roger_admin

But from some reason LVM cant remove them, any option I should have on
lvm.conf?

BestRegards
