Re: [dm-devel] Sun StorageTek 2530 and dm?



This is the expected behavior, when IOs on the active path fails, the
hardware handler will activate the passive path and make it active and
start sending IOs thru that newly activated path.

Send MODE_SELECT is how the hardware handler makes the passive path
active.
