Re: [dm-devel] Detecting Multiple Paths to LU



You need to set up lvm.conf to do the following. It probably is totally
correct, but it seems to work well enough.


# Make lvm look at the multipath device maps only, not the
# single devices

scan = [ "/dev/mapper" ]

# exclude the raw disks, just to be paranoid
filter = ["r|/dev/sd|"]

# make lvm use dm devices
types = [ "device-mapper", 16 ]


Once you assembled the multipath devices you can then run

pvcreate /dev/mapper/XXXXX

and create your volume groups.


I've created and then extended and LVM across two multipathed physical
volumes on my test system.
