Re: [dm-devel] DM-Multipather with initialization probem ?



Hi Achim,

What is the "failback" set to in your configuration file ?

If it is set to "manual" then the failed path will not become active by
themselves. If you want them to be automatic, I would suggest setting it
to "immediate".

More details can be found at

regards,

chandra
