Set up the multipath.conf file

Contributors netapp-jolieg

The multipath.conf file is the configuration file for the multipath daemon, multipathd.

The multipath.conf file overrides the built-in configuration table for multipathd. Any line in the file with a first non-white-space character of # is considered a comment line.

Note For SANtricity operating system 8.30 and newer, NetApp recommends using the default settings as provided.

The multipath.conf files are available in the following locations:

  • For SLES:

    /usr/share/doc/packages/multipath-tools/multipath.conf.synthetic

  • For RHEL:

    /usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9/multipath.conf
