Red Hat Ent Linux 5 Update 3 Sample multipath.conf file



My customer is trying to make sure his multipath.conf file for a RHEL 5 U3 standalone host is setup correctly.

Does anyone have a sample multipath.conf for a host connected to an SSI cluster with FCP luns?

Please reply to this thread or send directly to me at





Hi Chris,

Please find the sample content of multipath.conf as follows.

cat multipath.conf
defaults {
user_friendly_names no
rr_min_io 128
devnode_blacklist {
devnode "sda[0-9]*"
devnode "^(ram|raw|loop|fd|md|dm-|sr|scd|st)[0-9]*"
devnode "^hd[a-z]"
devnode "^cciss!c[0-9]d[0-9]*"
devices {
device {
vendor "NETAPP"
product "LUN"
path_grouping_policy multibus
getuid_callout "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
prio_callout "/sbin/mpath_prio_netapp /dev/%n"
features "1 queue_if_no_path"
path_checker readsector0
failback immediate

Please let me know for further information. Hope this helps. Also see attachment.

Thanks and Regards,

Viswanathan Balaji.
