RE: [dm-devel] open-iscsi + dm-multipath

BTW I have seen in the case of atleast 2 different iSCSI target
implementations (unh-iscsi and iscsi-enterprise target), the target does
not return the physical disk id for the scsi_id callout, but returns
manufactured values (like LINUX ISCSI for vendor, etc). Given that, how
can multipath-tools create multipaths for different iscsi disks ? I am
thinking of the case 2 iscsi servers running iscsi target software and
talking to the same FC disk at the back-end. By running multipath-tools
I would expect the 2 different iSCSI logical devices to be part of the
same multipath group. But if the target software on both the servers
returns made-up values then this scheme would break, right ? Any
comments on this one ?

I tried on Monday, but I'm stuck before dm-multipath kicks into play.
Build runs ok, modules load into the kernel, daemon starts up, but the
admin tool remain desparetely silent to all commands I stuffed at it.

What is even more weird is that the daemon (in debug mode) remains
silent too.

The target side works well : IET verified with Cisco initiator.
