Multipath software

This page describes the installation of Multipath software.

Multipath allows a networked block device, such as an iSCSI disk, to be accessible over more than one network connection. When configured properly, the cluster should not fail when (a single) network connection is lost.

To be able to use multipath, configure this in the kernel:

 Device Drivers
	Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM)
		[M] Multipath target

This creates the kernel module dm-multipath.

Multipath only gets interesting when the VM's are installed. We're not there yet, so hold on..
