Re: [dm-devel] RH 4 and HSG80



I have no access to HSGs but maybe this generic statements (plus some 
wisdom from hwtable.c) helps:

First, you are actually forcing multipath-tools to use all paths by 
stating "multibus" in you multipath section.
Everything you put there will replace the defaults and the device 
sections. Just be minimalistic there. In the
latest multipath-tools code there actually is a configuration for 
"DEC"/"HSG80". From this, does the following
multipath-conf help you?

defaults {
        rr_min_io                       64
        user_friendly_names     yes
}

multipaths {
        multipath {
                wwid    360001fe1000d85f000039341397602d2
                alias   disk1
        }
        multipath {
                wwid    360001fe1000d85f0000393413976024b
                alias   disk2
        }
}

devices {
        device {
                vendor                  "DEC"
                product                 "HSG80"
                path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
                prio_callout            "/sbin/mpath_prio_hp_sw /dev/%n"
                hardware_handler                "1 hp_sw"
                path_checker            hp_sw
                no_path_retry           5
        }
        device {
                vendor                  "DEC"
                product                 "HSG80    (C) DEC"
                path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
                prio_callout            "/sbin/mpath_prio_hp_sw /dev/%n"
                hardware_handler                "1 hp_sw"
                path_checker            hp_sw
                no_path_retry           5
        }
}
