Re: [dm-devel] Bug 999761 - Review NetApp path_checker and features for RHEL5 mpath



Thanks Martin.

So it just seems the documentation in multipath.conf.defaults is outdated.

I've closed my previous bug, and logged a new bug with a patch for the docs:

 Bug 1004179 - Documented NetApp device in multipath.conf.defaults is outdated
 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1004179
