Hello, 

 

Your problem smell like a multipathing problem 

What is the config file in this OS ?

 

Thanks

MYK450

here is the output of multipath.conf output..

 

 

~]# more /etc/multipath.conf

# This is a basic configuration file with some examples, for device mapper

# multipath.

# For a complete list of the default configuration values, see

# /usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-0.4.7/multipath.conf.defaults

# For a list of configuration options with descriptions, see

# /usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-0.4.7/multipath.conf.annotated

 

 

# Blacklist all devices by default. Remove this to enable multipathing

# on the default devices.

#blacklist {

#        devnode "*"

#}

 

## By default, devices with vendor = "IBM" and product = "S/390.*" are

## blacklisted. To enable mulitpathing on these devies, uncomment the

## following lines.

#blacklist_exceptions {

#       device {

#               vendor  "IBM"

#               product "S/390.*"

#       }

#}

 

## Use user friendly names, instead of using WWIDs as names.

        no_path_retry       5

        path_checker        tur

        rr_min_io           100

}

##

## Here is an example of how to configure some standard options.

##

#

#defaults {

#       udev_dir                /dev

## The wwid line in the following blacklist section is shown as an example

## of how to blacklist devices by wwid.  The 2 devnode lines are the

## compiled in default blacklist. If you want to blacklist entire types

## of devices, such as all scsi devices, you should use a devnode line.

## However, if you want to blacklist specific devices, you should use

## a wwid line.  Since there is no guarantee that a specific device will

## not change names on reboot (from /dev/sda to /dev/sdb for example)

## devnode lines are not recommended for blacklisting specific devices.

Hi, is depending your version cDOT or 7-Mode 

 

and after ALUA or not in your initiator group

 

but, so you can see this document :

https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1654943/html/GUID-C5CFA561-7FD1-45F2-8BF8-1C7F04910274.html

Hi,

I am using 7-mode and also not using ALUA in initiator group.

MYK450

I have also tried rebooting the node. Also just to bring it to your notice, its a production node so before changing anything in the multipath.conf file i need to be prety sure as we cant afford any problems.
