Description

LSAC(v2)
The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath devices using the device-mapper multipath kernel module. This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, if the user created duplicate aliases, or aliases that matched the user_friendly names, those devices switched their paths, and thus caused multipath device path corruption. The underlying code has been fixed, and the multipath utility now refuses to reload a device with an existing duplicate alias. In addition, multipath now issues a warning message on potentially conflicting aliases. As a result, multipath no longer corrupts data if users name two devices identically. (BZ#1065229) Users of device-mapper-multipath are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
