Re: redhat-list Digest, Vol 77, Issue 18



Hi, 

To answer you question on why to use IBM RDAC, There is  no need for dm-multipath at all. Easy enough to re-install later.

Hi all,



I have problem with my servers. I use two of HP Blade Servers and RHEL 4.6 

installed on them, and have IBM DS4700 connected to them.

In those servers are running RHCS (Red Hat Cluster Suite) with GFS for handling 

Oracle Database.

Yesterday, I had missing one partition from the storage, suddenly. I called IBM 

and they suggested to use RDAC.

The question is, Why should use IBM RDAC for multipath in my RHEL 4, and why HP 

Blade + HP EVA Storage don't use any addition plugins software to keep server + 

storage connection?

I will appreciate For some reasons by all of you. 

Thank you.





Regards,

Wahyu

I would bet that it's simply the support guys are trained on RDAC and  

not trained on multipath.

This is a classic. RDAC is the standard supported way to perform 

multi-path software config for IBM DS devices. In addition, it provides 

some troubleshooting features that are not included in other software 

suites (such as the HP tools). So, what they will do is to look at the 

'SMdevices' command and verify the status of the RDAC software that 

talks to your DS4700 unit. The HP Blade + EVA is concerned with lights 

out and HP specific things.



When I had to deal with a similar case, IBM insisted that it is part of 

the support deal to install this software. It is not really a big thing 

to install it. If they won't help you with installation give us a shout.
