[dm-devel] state we don't understand



Hello all,

Every once in a while we run into a situation like this and we have caught a machine in this state to hopefully gain some insight into what is wrong where causing this. We have a 'multipath -l' output like this:

[root r17init5 ~]# multipath -l
...
mpathguk (3624a9370fc048517648240bb00010005) dm-4 PURE,FlashArray
size=500G features='0' hwhandler='0' wp=rw
`-+- policy='round-robin 0' prio=0 status=active

....

You can see that the dm device is combining different LUN numbers under the same dm device which is obviously leading to data corruption. Some dm devices in the list do not have this problem. You can see that these should not be getting combined since their page 0x83 inquiry data is not the same:

So the first two have 0x624a9370fc048517648240bb00010005 and the second two have the 0x624a9370fc048517648240bb00010003. Is there some caching here that causes this? What could get us here?

I have the server in the state currently so if there is any further output that would help figure out what happened here then let me know.

Thanks,
Brian
