Troubles installing SnapDrive for Linux


Hi all!


I'm experiencing some troubles installing snapdrive for linux. Cannot start daemon, log files are attached. I already installed and configured multipath and host utilities. I can run sanlun lun show or sanlun fcp show adapter normally. It's hardvare server HP BL460c gen8 with QLogic QMH2572 8Gb FC HBA. OS is RHEL 6.7.


Could anyone help me with this trouble?


Thank you!
