kernel: blk_cloned_rq_check_limits: over max segments limit., Device Mapper Multipath, iBFT, iSCSI COMSTAR
Hi, WARNING: Long post ahead I have an issue when starting multipathd. The kernel complains about "blk_cloned_rq_check_limits: over max segments limit". The server in question is configured for KVM hosting. It boots via iBFT to an iSCSI volume. Target is COMSTAR and underlying that is a ZFS volume (100GB). The server also has two infiniband cards providing four (4) more paths over SRP

device-mapper multipath
I am attempting to get multipath working with device-mapper (CentOS 4.2 and 4.3). It works on EVERY install of mine from RH (also v4.2, 4.3), but the same multipath.conf imported to all my installs of CentOS do not work. Note that I have tested a working 4.2 configuration file from RH on CentOS 4.2 and a working 4.3 configuration (it changed slightly) on CentOS 4.3. Neither worked. Our production

CentOS and Dell MD3200i / MD3220i iSCSI w/ multipath
...y. Their docs are pretty inconsistent. I've noted omissions, terminology differences, and procedural differences among the "Owner's Manual", "Deployment Guide", a professional services "Remote Services Installation Agreement" service description. Some of the multipathing guidance we've had comes from their EqualLogic line of storage servers. Questions: 1: Is there anyone out there running this configuration and are you satisfied with it? 2: We get a set of error messages on the initator at target login. These appear to be benign, and web research suggests i...

ZFS and multipath with iSCSI
We''re currently designing a ZFS fileserver environment with iSCSI based storage (for failover, cost, ease of expansion, and so on). As part of this we would like to use multipathing for extra reliability, and I am not sure how we want to configure it. Our iSCSI backend only supports multiple sessions per target, not multiple connections per session (and my understanding is that the Solaris initiator doesn''t currently support multiple connections anyways). However, w...

Adding handling for Multipath storage devices
The following patches introduce support for multipath and cciss devices to the ovirt-node and node-image. Comments are appreciated. These patches assume that the 3 patches (2 node, 1 node-image) from Joey are all incorporated. Mike

Multipath pools - practical for use?
Hi all, Writing up some Fedora documentation, and looking to figure out the best way of mapping multipath network(!) LUNs to pools in libvirt. ie Infiniband SRP LUNs, but would probably apply to Fibre Channel equally as well. There are two approaches I can think of easily: a) Large LUNs (ie TB+) that are mapped to a host server as disk, with each LUN being configured as an LVM

Multipath-root (mpath) problems with CentOS 5
Hi list! I have a server with dual port Qlogic iSCSI HBA. I set up the same LUN for both ports, and boot the CentOS installer with "linux mpath". Installer detects multipathing fine, and creates mpath0 device for root disk. Installation goes fine, and the system boots up and works fine after the install from the multipath root device. After install the setup is like this: LUN 0 on port 1: /dev/sda LUN 0 on port 2: /dev/sdb and those form mpath0 device,...

multipath routing
Hi, I am tring to us ip route to load balance between two interfaces. ip route add equalize 10.200.1.0/24 nexthop via 10.200.0.2 dev neta nexthop via 10.200.0.2 dev neta2 Where neta and neta2 are gre tunnels. Testing show that packets travel in a single sided manner. Do I need to use the multipath (IP_ROUTE_MULTIPATH_CACHED) module? thx jason

Device-mapper-multipath not working correctly with GNBD devices
Hi all, I am trying to configure a failover multipath between 2 GNBD devices. I have a 4 nodes Redhat Cluster Suite (RCS) cluster. 3 of them are used for running services, 1 of them for central storage. In the future I am going to introduce another machine for central storage. The 2 storage machine are going to share/export the same disk. The idea is not to have a single point of

kickstart install on SAN with multipath
Using CentOS 5.1, though with a few hours work I could update to 5.2.. I can install to SAN with a single path no problem but I'd like to be able to use dm-multipath. From the kickstart docs it seems this is supported but there is no information as to what the various options mean

dm-multipath do not autoscan partition table
Hello I am wondering if anyone este tried this. I Have few CentOS 6.2 systems that are running KVM virtual machines. As storage backend for them I use 2 iscsi targets (based on openindiana). For accessing these disks I use dm-multipath, since I use 2 separate networks for access. For these reasons I want host system to force not to scan dm-multipath disks for partitions. According to

iscsi storage, LACP or Multipathing | Migration or rebuild?
Hi, I do have one iscsi storage with 4 GBit nics of which currently only one is configured with an ip and which is in productive use by one cent os 6.3 server. Doing some research brought me to the idea to use some nic bonding or multipathing for that storage, but multipathing I did about four or five years ago only once :) Furthormore I can't find the ultimate answer (may be there is not such) what will be better for us: bonding or multipathing. The storage is used for backup; it's connected to an backupserver which pulls da...

root file system on multipathed device and some other questions
I was playing a bit with multipathed devices (over two FC HBAs on SAN) last week (I had some hardware for limited time to play with). The support for multipathing in device mapper seems to be a bit newer thing, and I was left with couple of questions (things I haven't managed to try out while I had the hardware)... Is it possible to have root file system on multipathed device? I guess in this case some multipathing setup would need to occur when init s...

NPIV & multipath inside domU
...e any ideas on the best way to do this? Maybe the size of the disk, plus the first 512 bytes or something like that? I'm open to suggestions on what will be the best guarantee of uniqueness of disks. And, yes, I know one way to do this is to just present the LUNs to dom0 and have dom0 do the multipathing, but, for various reasons, it's better if I can figure out a way to use NPIV and accomplish this.
