[dm-devel] Proposed change to scsi_id parameter string in libmultipath/hwtab le.c for EMC Symmetrix



Christophe,

May want to patch the EMC SYMMETRIX hw entry in
libmultipath/hwtable.c to use the "-ppre-spc3-83"
scsi_id option.  Doing so will allow scsi_id to
return a UID derived from a version of a SCSI
Inquiry EVPD page 83 which is not compliant with
either SPC-2 or SPC-3 for an older model Symmetrix,
that is, models 4, 5 and some model sixes.

I should have suggested this earlier, but I assumed
that it would be good enough for administrators to simply
modify their /etc/scsi_id.config file to add this
option as a default for all Symmetrix models.  Since
this assumption is likely a bad idea :((, I think we
should include the new option in the multipath default
configuration.

Udev will need similar changes since we likely cannot
rely on the scsi_id.config file being setup properly
by a site administrator.

Here is the patch.
