Friendly Names in Oracle Linux 7 Multipathing Devices
Last updated on DECEMBER 26, 2016
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 and later
On a new installation, the vendor devices are unable to be showed by friendly names after added the option in the default section at /etc/multipath.conf.
The server is still showing the devices with the World Wide Identifier (WWID).
In this example, the value "user_friendly_names yes" was added in the /etc/multipath.conf.
During initial configuration of new multipath devices and after set the user_friendly_names option in the default section, the server is unable to see the devices with the friendly name.
