Good.

I'm assuming the only edit you're doing is to remove the wwid with asterisk you asked about.

Be sure you only remove the line:
wwid "*"

Do NOT remove the "{" directly above or below that line. The one above is the end of the entry above and the one below is the end of the entire blacklist section so both are required.

Yes, I am going to comment out the wwid "*"

Code:
blacklist {
        devnode "^(ram|raw|loop|fd|md|dm-|sr|scd|st)[0-9]*"
        devnode "^hd[a-z]"
        devnode "^dcssblk[0-9]*"
        device {
                vendor "DGC"
                product "LUNZ"
        }
        device {
                vendor "IBM"
                product "S/390.*"
        }
        # don't count normal SATA devices as multipaths
        device {
                vendor  "ATA"
        }
        # don't count 3ware devices as multipaths
        device {
                vendor  "3ware"
        }
        device {
                vendor  "AMCC"
        }
        # nor highpoint devices
        device {
                vendor  "HPT"
        }
        wwid "3600508b1001c9c5986be0c6503c1857e"
        device {
                vendor HP
                product Virtual_DVD-ROM
        }
        wwid "*"
}

Made the change in multipath.conf and did "service multipathd restart". There was no disruption.
Unfortunately it did not resolve the issue. The SAN devices still show up as local SD devices.

What does "multipath -ll" or "multipath -l -v2" show now?

Also what lines do you have uncommented in lvm.conf?

Did you ever figure out the number of Hitachi LDEVs you have presented to this server?

Did you verify lsscsi output hasn't changed?

Multipath -ll now shows one additional LUN, which I missed to notice when I check after initially after making the change.

No changes were made to lvm.conf. I only changed multipath.conf, commented out wwid "*" in blacklist section.

I forgot to check lsscsi but will do it asap. And, also get with storage team to find out total number of LUNs presented to this server.

The reason I asked about lvm.conf is that it is possible you have the filter line set in such a way that LVM isn't looking at some of your multipath devices.

Also I see you're using partitions on your devices as PVs. It may be you don't have the multipath partition devices (e.g. mpathe = whole disk, mpathep1 = first partition on mpathe). The multipath command outputs only the whole disk info but you can see the other info in /dev/mapper.

You need to run "vgscan".

I just did a test and found vgscan makes LVM use your multipath instead of single path sd (assuming the multipath exists - you said you have one more):

On test system vg_VolGroup01 uses sdc from SAN:
[root]# pvs
PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
/dev/sda2 vg_VolGroup00 lvm2 a-- 278.38g 175.84g
/dev/sdc vg_VolGroup01 lvm2 a-- 1024.00g 0

After modifying multipath.conf and running the restart of the multipathd it still displayed the above.

I then ran the vgscan which output:
[root]# vgscan
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "vg_VolGroup01" using metadata type lvm2
Found volume group "vg_VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2

After that it shows the multipath device instead of the sd device:
[root]# pvs
PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
/dev/mapper/mpatha vg_VolGroup01 lvm2 a-- 1024.00g 0
/dev/sda2 vg_VolGroup00 lvm2 a-- 278.38g 175.84g

In above output sda2 is our Internal RAID controller (PERC) so doesn't use multipath.

I looked in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf and did not see any filters that would prohibit it from looking at any devices.

What did you change in multipath ?

Doing a vgscan shouldn't be a problem, I will try to get that done here shortly. After reading the MAN pages of course, I am a little paranoid :-)

It was initial setup for multipath on this server. This server didn't have the disk array in Devices because it didn't previously have multipath running at all due to there being only 1 fiber port on the server zoned to 1 port on the disk array. Due to maintenance I was doing yesterday I wanted to modify that one server port to see 2 different fiber ports on the disk array so when one of those disk array ports went offline it wouldn't take down the device at host level.

It just so happened that I saw pvs didn't display the multipath device as the PV even though start of multipathd created it. It was the vgscan that made pvs display the multipath instead of the single path device. (That is to say one has to run the multipathd restart so multipath sees and creates the multipath devices in /dev/mapper then run vgscan so LVM sees that multipath device instead of the single path.)

Running "vgscan" did not fix the issue. Here is the output of one of the volume groups

OK there are various layers of things happening here:

1) Disk array is presenting a LUN to the server over various paths based on the number of array fiber ports and server fiber ports zoned together. All of this is typically done in the SAN switch.
Per earlier settings we see you should have 8 paths for each LUN presented.

2) After re-scanning fiber HBAs, the server creates a /dev/sd<alpha> for each path it finds to SCSI disks so would create 8 of those for each array LUN presented because of the 8 paths noted above.

3) An sd<alpha> is a "scsi disk" and can be partitioned so that it has "sd<alpha><numeric> where the numeric is the partition number.

4) When an sd is partitioned it should be done on one of the sd<alpha> devices (e.g. sdav). Partition 1 would be created after writing that via fdisk, parted or whatever tool you used. (e.g. you would have sdav for entire disk, sdav1 for first partition, sdav2 for second partition etc...)

5) For multiple paths to the same LUN to be seen in Linux multipathing they must all have the same ID. It is multipath.conf and multipathd that recognizes this to create an mpath<alpha> (Note the alpha for mpath is not going to be the same as for sd for the obvious reason there are more of the sd devices than there are mpath devices.)

5) For multiple paths to a disk if you want to add partitions you must partition the sd<alpha> and not the multipath (mpath<alpha>) device.

6) Once you have added a partition to any of the sd<alpha> devices that are all paths to the same LUN on array you must run other commands so that the other sd<alpha> paths to that disk recognize they now have a partition and also so that the mpath<alpha> sees it.
a) Run "blockdev --flushbufs" on each of the sd<alpha> devices that are paths to the same disk.
b) Run "partprobe" so all of the sd<alpha><numeric> and mpath<alpha>p<numeric> devices are created (i.e. the partition is created under /dev (or /dev/mapper) for each.
c) Run "service multipathd restart" just to make sure it sees everything.

7) Once you see the mpath<alpha>p<numeric> devices have been created run "vgscan" which should pick up the mpath<alpha>p<numeric>.

To recap - you must have what is expected at each level above. You can't skip steps.

So after a while I log into the box today try and fix the outstanding issue. Run a vgdisplay -v & pvs and, all the LUNs seem to have redundancy now !

## pvs
PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
/dev/mapper/mpathap1 vg01 lvm2 a-- 725.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathbp1 vg02 lvm2 a-- 150.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathcp1 vg03 lvm2 a-- 34.99g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathdp1 vg04 lvm2 a-- 59.99g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathep1 vg05 lvm2 a-- 34.99g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathfp1 vg06 lvm2 a-- 229.99g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathhp1 vg07 lvm2 a-- 229.99g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathip1 vg08 lvm2 a-- 50.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathjp1 vg07 lvm2 a-- 270.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathkp1 vg02 lvm2 a-- 110.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathmp1 vg02 lvm2 a-- 105.00g 0
/dev/mapper/mpathnp1 vg07 lvm2 a-- 200.00g 0
/dev/sdba2 vg_denplpilatdb1 lvm2 a-- 247.62g 5.44g

Only explanation I can think of is that last change of updating '/etc/multipath.conf' and restarting actually worked but the server needed a reboot. It was rebooted on Mon Apr 10. Thanks for the help !

Once configuration (/etc/lvm/lvm.conf and /etc/multipath.conf) done and you happy with it, pls rebuilt initrd. (save previous as .old is a good idea). HOWTO LUNs on Linux using native tools
