Good day Nico
1) I dont know RDAC. From what I was able to gather, it is IBM storage
specific and an extra add-on (extra to the OS)
2) I found this in the Red Hat Knowledge Base: How can static names be
assigned for devices in udev for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4?
3) devlabel is RHEL 3 only
I would recommend (2) since RHEL 4 supports it out of the box and is
Disclaimer - I myself havent used udev to provide persistent names in a
RHEL 4 cluster.
