RE: [dm-devel] RE: Temporarily squelching multipathd errors



I am still getting multipath errors when unpresenting and presenting
LUNs.  I've traced it down to getting path failures everytime I either
remove or add a LUN to the system.  The strange thing is that I get path
errors for maps that aren't related to the LUNs I am deleting or adding.
In this case, I am deleting the LUN with the map 'mpath18,' but other
maps complain whenever the LUN is deleted:

Nov 21 13:47:05 ausracdbd01 multipathd: checker failed path 67:208 in
map orabackup_hs

Nov 21 13:47:10 ausracdbd01 multipathd: checker failed path 65:240 in
map limsd_arch


Sometimes I only get 5-10 "checker failed path" errors, other times I
get 30+.  

Can anyone give me any advice?  These are OCFS2 filesystems on RHEL5
attached to a HP EVA8000.
