SLES11SP3: multipath.conf -> new uid_attribute "ID_SERIAL"

Hi,

there are some changes in SLES11SP3 in multipath.conf.

I'm interested about this change:

getuid_callout

In the defaults section of the /etc/multipath.conf file, the getuid_callout attribute is deprecated and replaced by the uid_attribute attribute. This is a udev attribute that provides a unique path identifier. The default value is ID_SERIAL.

After you upgrade to SLES 11 SP3, modify the attributes in the defaults section of your /etc/multipath.conf file as follows:

Remove or comment out the following line from the defaults section:

getuid_callout "/lib/udev/scsi_id --whitelisted --device=/dev/%n"

Add the following line to the defaults section:

uid_attribute "ID_SERIAL"


I didn't infos about other uid_attribute other then the default "ID_SERIAL".
Did anybody know other attributes ore documents where i can find it?

Regards
Thomas

Re: SLES11SP3: multipath.conf -> new uid_attribute "ID_SERIA

Just for info.
found these command:

udevadm info --query=all --path /sys/block/sda

There are some usefull outputs.

So, it could be


uid_attribute "SCSI_IDENT_LUN_T10"


but i have to check it, when i do the upgrade.

Hello Thomas,

I'm currently exploring this as well. Can you tell me how your experiment went. I'm having a little difficulty learning more about it, too.

Thanks!
