Re: [dm-devel] Problem with Multipath (devices not ready)

did you update to multipath >= 0.4.6 ?

Probably I've missed it - but how do you access the CX? Via a switch?
direct? How many HBAs do you use? Are they all allowed to connect to the

Did you try it without any multipath.conf at all? The defaults in 0.4.6
work well.

although sdc and sdd are faulty you should be able to access the LUN -
you have 2 active and ready paths to it. Look for LUN_TESTES in your
/dev directory.

Do you have the right udev rules for multipath? As all distros do handle
this on a different way - which distro and udev version are you using?

Make sure dm events are not discarded.
On debian sarge for example you ahve to change this in udev.rules:

#KERNEL="dm-[0-9]*",    OPTIONS="ignore_device"
KERNEL="dm-[0-9]*", PROGRAM="/sbin/devmap_name %M %m", NAME="%k",

Are the multipath rules for udev installed? Do you have any errors from
udev in your log?

I hope I could give you some more hints.

Best regards,
