Re: Qlogic FC Multipath and engenio

Hash: SHA1

Dear List,

I have disovered that the StorageTek devices have a secondary mode (AVT) so that they could be used with the multipath-tools.

Does anyone have the multipath-tools running with Debian sarge. The ones that are in sarge seem very old. I am using a backports copy of udev, and am compiling multipath-tools by hand. I am running against a 2.6.15r2 kernel. QLogic FC HBA

I am a little confused as to how all this is ment to work together.

In dmesg I am seeing

	device-mapper: dm-multipath: error getting device
	device-mapper: error adding target to table

Any thoughts?

As the multipath-tools don't seem to be doing anything... multipath

I compiled the kernel myself (monolithic)

Thanks for your help,

What do I need to do to run multipath? Does the qlogic (qla2xxx) driver in the vanilla kernel support multipath? If so, do I need to do something to enable it?

multipath-tools does a good job IMO of managing multipath devices. I have done a fair bit of testing with it and it seems to work as advertised. My testing has been using SuSE Enterprise Server 9 not Debian but multipath-tools does appear to be in Debian as well.

You can get some information at http:// christophe.varoqui.free.fr/ ... as well (hopefully) by installing the Debian package.
