Trying to configure failover in multipath.conf
Posted on 2013-01-10
I am trying to configure multipathing to our storage with a failover policy. At the minute it looks like it's set to round robin, which is not what we want at the moment.
If I do a multipath-ll command I seem to have two active paths. Please see below
mpath0 (36000eb335cd762ff00000000000005c4) dm-2 IBM,iSCSIDisk
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=2][active]
\_ 1:0:0:0 sda 8:0 [active][ready]
\_ 2:0:0:0 sdh 8:112 [active][ready]
I would expect one to be [active][ready] and the other to be [active][standby] ??
My multipath.conf file is configured as follows
getuid_callout "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
path_selector "round robin 0"
Am I missing something?
