This test checks that no INFINIDAT devices are included on the multipath configuration file black list.
This test case fails if:
- There is a device-specific blacklist rule against Infinidat's Vendor ID and Product ID
- There is a regular expressions blacklist rule that excludes sg devices
- There are Infinidat volume serial numbers that are explicitly black-listed
This test case passes if:
- There are no device or regex or wwid rules that black-list Infinidat devices
How-to fix this test
The automatic fix does the following:
- Removes the blacklist rules from the configuration file.
- Creates 2 files for user inspection before completing:
/etc/multipath.conf.[timestamp].full- this file contains the current configuration.
Note that this file will include all multipath configuration, including default built-in values that the multipath service uses. This means that this file may contain more values than those already written in the configuration file (in
/etc/multipath.conf.[timestamp].fixed- this is the new file that will be used after the fix is completed.
- Awaits user approval. The user may use a diff tool to compare these two files before confirming the fix.
- Once the fix completes, these files are removed. The files are not removed if the fix is not applied (e.g. if the user decides not to apply the automatic fix).
- When the automatic fix is applied, it will create a backup of the old configuration file, in /etc/multipath.conf.[timestamp].bak.
- The fix will also create a
grubentry that the user may use to revert to the old configuration on startup, if needed.
