[dm-devel] Dell MD3000/multipath - huge numbers of I/O errors on boot



I've got a Dell MD3000 SAS cabinet, connected with two SAS cables using multipathd/dm-multipath.

Most things work fine, but one problem I have is that the MD3000 wants to do failover, it gets very shirty if I access the "ghost" path to a LUN without doing some RDAC fancyness.

The problem is that when the kernel discovers each LUN it tries to read the partition table, which produces insane numbers of read failures on boot. How can I silence them?
