[dm-devel] EMC Cx300 multipath seems to work



Hi,

multipath seems to work on gentoo, I have to load the modules in proper order, this is my configuration:

cat /etc/conf.d/local.start
# /etc/conf.d/local.start

# This is a good place to load any misc programs
# on startup ( use 1>&2 to hide output)
/sbin/modprobe dm-emc
/sbin/modprobe qla2300
/bin/sleep 5
/sbin/udevstart
/etc/init.d/multipathd start

is critical the command udevstart without only one path is seen,

I experienced a kernel oops with kernel-2.6.12 (both vanilla-sources and gentoo-sources) when I load qla2300 module, here are the logs:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000

however kernel-2.6.13 works fine (both vanilla and gentoo-sources)

here are my multipath configuration

grep -v "#" /etc/multipath.conf
defaults {
        multipath_tool  "/sbin/multipath -v0"
        udev_dir        /dev
        polling_interval 10
        default_selector        "round-robin 0"
        default_getuid_callout  "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
        default_prio_callout    "/bin/true"
        failback        immediate
}
multipaths {

        multipath {
                wwid                    3600601608c901200ccfe543f4053d911
                alias                   200Gb
                path_grouping_policy    failover

        multipath {
                wwid                    3600601608c9012006269b8f63b87d911

        }
        multipath {
                wwid                    3600601608c9012008ae5de2cc985d911
                alias                   300Gb
                path_grouping_policy    failover
                path_checker            readsector0
                path_selector           "round-robin 0"
                failback                immediate
        }
}

The tests aren't very accurate because the machine is 100 Km away, tomorrow I'll do more accurate tests, I'll post results,

big thanks to Cristophe for multipath-tools,
big thanks to gistolero for his accurate testing on gentoo, your posts are very useful for me,

any suggestions to improve my setup are welcome,

I have to install naviagent? On redhat naviagent register powerpath name to cx 300, it works with multipath?

Nicola

P.S. for gistolero, I haven't your problem with multipathd (or so seems) however my hardware is different, I think also that the need to run udevstart is a gentoo bug, today gentoo has releases udev-0.68-r1 with start-stop script, if you read start script there is udevstart, however I haven't yet tested this script because they require unstable baselayout-1.12
