Re: [Linux-cluster] RHEL 4.8 QDisk DM-Multipath Issue



Here is the latest:
 
With emulex hba, in /etc/modprobe.conf: lpfc_nodev_tmo is 30 secs.
 
Changed following:
 
/etc/multipath.conf: "polling_interval 10", "no_path_retry 4" (x=40)
 
cluster.conf: qdisk "interval 13" & "tko 4" (Qdisk failover = x * 1.3 = 52 = 13 *4)
 
cman "deadnode_timeout 108" ( x * 2.7) and "quorum_dev_poll 75".
 
With these values, we first hit lpfc_nodev_tmo in 30 secs.
After that multipathd does failovers.
It appears to work.
No longer getting kicked out of cluster while pulling fibres.
 
But mkqdisk -L output would still show non-multipath disk names in its output.
 
Thanks for the input.

i have not use multipath on rhel 4.8

but check if is due to max length for device name as in following bugzilla  ( following is for rhel 5.0 )

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=294351#c2

try to assign name which is < 16 in /etc/multipath.conf & check if its working.
try giving /dev/mapper/qd in your /etc/cluster.conf

I use multipath on RHEL 5.5 with RHCS clusters.   The "multipath -l" should show you if your paths are available.

MP Stationery
I am having a back and forth with RH support on this.
Problem is my fibre attached qdisk is dm-multipathed yet when I issue
"mkqdisk -L" I don't see the /dev/mapper/mpath... but LUNs seen from
individual fibre paths.
In addition when I unplug cable (path B) for /dev/sdh1 (same as
/dev/dm-13), that node gets fenced out.

# mkqdisk -L
mkqdisk v0.5.2

Has anybody got dm-multipath working for qdisk on RHEL 4.8 cluster?
