SuSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 under Modular Server MFSYS25V2: (Dual-) SCM Problem / MultiPath

We are trying to install SLES 11 SP1 x64 on a MFS5520VIBR Compute-Modul and are facing a

critical problem regarding MultiPath.

uname -a

Linux LXTEST 2.6.32.12-0.7-default # 1 SMP 2010-05-20 11:14:20 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

Installation Medium:

SLES-11-SP1-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1

Our Installation Procedure:

- Remove SCM # 2

- Create Virtual Drive

 

- Basic Installation of SLES 11 SP1 (apply almost all default settings)

- Install rpm package: (from Package SLES11SP1_MPIO_Setup20110712)

rpm -ivh --force scsi_dh_alua_sles11sp1-2-1.x86_64.rpm

- Copy MultiPath-Config (without editing) (from Package SLES11SP1_MPIO_Setup20110712)

cp multipath.conf /etc/multipath.conf

- Activate MultiPathD

multipathd on

 

- Ensure that MultiPathD is running

multipathd on

===> Output: multipathd on

- Plug-In the SCM # 2

- Reboot Compute-Modul

It looks like you've done all the steps from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=18634 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=18634

I haven't tried SLES 11 SP1 - do you have a non-service-packed distro to test with? There might be something in the service pack that changed.

Try set your path grouping policy to group_by_serial in multipath.conf (reboot for changes to kick in)

path_grouping_policy "group_by_serial"
