Re: [dm-devel] Simulating faulty disk



Is there any way we can create a regular scsi device and then dynamically change its personality
to delay or flakey ?
Or
Is there a way to dynamically change the parameters of flakey/delay device.

So we can start with no errors and then we can inject some errors.

Thanks,
Yathi

You can't create a mapped device on something while it is mounted as device-mapper needs to open it exclusively.

But as seen from above, dmsetup is failing to create a flakey/delay
device when /dev/sdb
has a filesystem on top of it. Is there any workaround ?

Set up the file system the way you want it on sdb first. Then unmount it and create the device-mapper devices and mount that.
