[dm-devel] multipath disk size


I'm posting my question again, i would really appreciate if someone could give me a hint why this happen.

I'm trying to setup a FC Storage (Adaptec SANBloc 2Gb) using multipath
(Kernel 2.6.15 - multipath-tool-0.4.7 on Fedora Core 5 )
Everything seem to run right, but the disk created by multipath does not
reflect the physical one.
I do have a physical volume that is about 67GB big, when multipath
creates the dm device it is at least 1GB.
Here is the output of multipath -v3:
dm-0: blacklisted

When you look at the disk size, it return the correct value but when it
creates the dm device it does it too small.

When I do create the multipath device using dmsetup it creates it with the right size, but as soon as I do runf multipath again it resize the device.

Thanks a lot for your work and your help
