RE: [dm-devel] Multipath issues with kernel device errors

Thank you!!  mpath_prio_hp_sw was certainly missing, so I just used the failover option and commented it out.  Those errors are gone now!  Thanks so much for your help!

Errm. Not quite. My sources indicate that this machine
runs the older active/passive firmware, which requires
the 'hp_sw' hardware handler to run properly.

So better use this:
devices {
	device {
		vendor 		"COMPAQ"
		product		"MSA1000"
		hardware_handler	"1 hp_sw"
		path_grouping_policy	group_by_prio
		path_checker	hp_sw
 		prio_callout	"/sbin/mpath_prio_hp_sw /dev/%n"
 		getuid_callout	"/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
 		failback	manual

if mpath_prio_hp_sw is missing complain to Ben Marzinski :-)
Alternatively you can use

path_grouping_policy	failover

and omit the prio_callout altogether. But then only one path
per SP are used.
