Re: [dm-devel] Fibre Channel related crash



Hi,

Rumor has it that on Wed, Jun 22, 2005 at 10:28:32AM -0700 Patrick Mansfield said:

The HSV110 is and active/passive array. You're probably accessing a LU 
that is not on the controller your talking to. Sending it a start would
work, but, of course, then you can't access it through the other
controller...

I think the multipath tools and device mapper will know how to handle
this device.

Cheers,

Phil
