Re: [dm-devel] Mapping sectors to have errors



Hi Joe,

I tried it the other way but when I specify error it doesn't seem to take
the start sector > 0.

# echo "0 `blockdev --getsz /dev/sdb` linear /dev/sdb 0" | dmsetup create bad_disk

# dmsetup table
bad_disk: 0 488281250 linear 8:16 0

# echo "100000 488181250 error" | dmsetup load bad_disk << This failed
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Command failed

# echo "0 100000 error" |  dmsetup load bad_disk << This worked

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Yathi

Hi,

I'm trying to create a disk and map some sectors to have errors on them.

I tried this,

create bad_disk

I have put in the right arguments but not sure why it fails.
You have 2 target lines concatenated onto the same line there.
