Re: [dm-devel] dm-rdac not working?

* Chandra Seetharaman

What version of multipath tools are you using ?


Can you attach your multipath.conf file. You should be using the rdac
path checker instead of the tur path checker.

  Hmm, this was added in 0.4.8...  What's the difference between the
 rdac path checker and the tur checker?  Anyway, it appears to me that
 the problem here is with the kernel hardware handler, not in the
 userspace path checker, wouldn't you agree?  The hardware handler is
 invoked unpon pg init as expected, but fails to do its job.

Can you attach the o/p of "multipath -ll"

  This is after the machine has booted, so things have changed around a
 little.  3:0:0:1 and 4:0:0:0 has switched devices, but otherwise it
 looks like it did when I generated the problem.

I presume 8:64 and 8:112 are the devices corresponding to other paths of
the device.

  That's right.

You can see that the MODE_SELECT command is sent and immediately the
path is failed (which means the MODE_SELECT command has failed).

And this the same thing that repeats below.

  Yes.  It appears to me it's sending that MODE_SELECT (which I guess is
 like dm-emc's "trespass"?) command when it's  trying to activate the
 pg, but it simply doesn't work, so it's retrying over and over again,
 but in vain.  And after a while ext3 gets remounted r/o and it's game
