AutoYaST control file fails to detect Multipath devices
This document (7021221) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Device Mapper Multipath Path (DM-MPIO)
The autoyast file contained the following sections:
<general> <storage> <start_multipath config:type="boolean">true</start_multipath> </storage> </general>
Likewise, LIBSTORAGE_MULTIPATH_AUTOSTART=ON was added to the kernel command line using uppercase letters, since the option is case sensitive.
If the <device><drive> is specified, the MPIO device is used for the installation, but fails if it's commented out. Since the customer wants to install many servers, they require the <drive> be commented out so autoyast will auto detect the MPIO drive.
Change from this:
<type config:type="symbol">CT_DISK</type>To this:
