Arrays supported with Device-Mapper Multipath


Is there a way to find the list of supported arrays for the RHEL5, planned to be used with the Device-Mapper-Multipath? We are planning to migrate from EMC PowerPath to the RHEL5 Device-Mapper-Multipath.

Re: Arrays supported with Device-Mapper Multipath

Hi Mike Swift

I have gone through some of the documents and What I can understand is that the Dm-multipath Supports EMC storages. I think it is not dependent to any make or model, like powerpath which can support various storages of different make.It is mentioned in the advantages of multipath: Support for multiple and heterogenius SAN service provider. And EMC being the major storage vendor, multipath will definitely support it.

GNU/Linux device-mapper-multipath

Not specific to the SAN Host Bus Adapter (HBA).
Support for multiple and heterogeneous SAN storage provider.
Well integrated with the operating system.

Automatic update using RHN (you must be a licensed and registered user in this case).

No additional license cost.
