RE: [Linux-cluster] fence_scsi support in multipath env in RHEL5.3



Anyone is successfully using it?

I'm testing it with a clariion storage frame on RHEL 5.3, and as soon as I enable scsi_reserve, multipath starts failing and a path goes good and bad in a loop and scsi fencing fails sometimes, should I configure in a specific way multipath.conf?:

Yes, it is supported.
