Re: [dm-devel] How does multipath tool handle Lun remapping?



It make sense that multipath tool can notice that there is a
recreation of OS device. But it still depends on the external program,
such as scsi_id to get the identifier of the lun。
I looked through the scsi_id source code, found that unit serial
number might be returned if the device supported the EVPD inquery
page80. This might be the wrong infomation for multipath tool, is that
true?

Thanks,
