[dm-devel] RE: Dell MD3000i issues with dm mp

Yes, this could happen during the boot where the scsi_dh_rdac handler is not yet loaded. You might want to try adding scsi_dh_rdac in the initrd.  This will help to cut short all your error messages. I don’t see any problem with your multipath.conf.

Subject: [dm-devel] Dell MD3000i issues with dm mp


Greetings everyone, I have a RHEL 5.3 host attached to two Dell MD3000i storage arrays via iscsi.  I’m having some interesting issues upon bootup in this setup.  Between the two arrays I’m accessing 24 luns so after my iscsi service kicks in I get tons and tons of I/O error messages going across the screen.  This can go on for 15-20 minutes or longer.  It would appear that some I/O is being sent to the passive paths and they are returning errors.  It would seem the scsi layer is doing its thing to scan for partitions and probably causing the I/O that is being seen.  Is there any way to suppress/avoid this scenario?  Also, I thought I would post my multipath.conf file just to have some other eyes have a look at it and make sure I’m not missing something obvious so that is below.  Thanks in advance!
