Linux multipath command

26 March,2012 by Tom Collins

Q . How can I see  the details of multipathing on a Red Had Enterprise Linux 5 server, using DM-Multipath?  This is normally a prerequisite for a DB2 installation using SAN and Linux. The DBA can do a quick check

A. Use the multipath   command variations


#find the paths to LUN

multipath –l

 #Print multipathed paths showing which devices are multipathed

multipath –v2
