[dm-devel] LVM2, Multipath & iSCSI Volumes



Hey,

Iam using linux-isci-utils default rpm with Centos 4.5. The targets are on a
Hitachi WMS 100. The LUNs are exposed via both iSCSI ports for multipathing.

There are three LUNs exposed via both ports and I can see disks from sdb to sdg.
After start iscsi initiator i created a primary partition (type set to LVM)
using parted on sdb, sdc and sde.

I then configured multipath and i can see all devices mapped cleanly.

hitachi03 (36000000000000000043b8bff00000002)
[size=943 GB][features="0"][hwhandler="0"]
\_ round-robin 0 [active]
 \_ 3:0:0:2 sdf 8:80 [active][ready]
 \_ 4:0:0:2 sdg 8:96 [active][ready]

hitachi02 (36000000000000000043b8bff00000001)
[size=2047 GB][features="0"][hwhandler="0"]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=2][active]
 \_ 4:0:0:1 sde 8:64 [active][ready]
 \_ 3:0:0:1 sdd 8:48 [active][ready]

hitachi01 (36000000000000000043b8bff00000000)
[size=2047 GB][features="0"][hwhandler="0"]
\_ round-robin 0 [active]
 \_ 3:0:0:0 sdb 8:16 [active][ready]
 \_ 4:0:0:0 sdc 8:32 [active][ready]

[root localhost ~]# ll /dev/mapper/

brw-rw----  1 root disk 253,  4 Nov 15 20:08 hitachi03p1

I want to use hitachi01p1, hitachi02p1 and hitachi03p1 as PVs in a LVM2 VG. So i
did a pvcreate, but pvdisplay shows a weird result.

[root localhost ~]# pvcreate /dev/mapper/hitachi01p1
  Physical volume "/dev/mapper/hitachi01p1" successfully created

[root localhost ~]# pvdisplay
  --- NEW Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/mapper/hitachi01p1
  VG Name
  PV Size               101.94 MB
  Allocatable           NO
  PE Size (KByte)       0
  Total PE              0
  Free PE               0
  Allocated PE          0
  PV UUID               mPcYnl-OIHH-QK1U-f7vV-GV0t-NOBA-S2JFdf

PV Size is is only 101 MB whereas the LUN size is 2 TB.

My lvm.conf has...

    filter = [ "a|/dev/mapper/hitachi0.p.$|","r/.*/" ]
    types = [ "device-mapper", 1 ]

Im not using udev rules to create persistance naming for iscsi devices. I dont
think its required as multipath already maps the devices.

How can i fix this ?

TIA
