"ocfs2console" Works Abnormally on Multipathed Physical Devices (Doc ID 428523.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Linux Kernel - Version: 1.2.3 to 1.2.4
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

When trying to configure an OCFS2 volume on multipath devices, the ocfs2console does not show the shared raw partitions in the candidate partition list to format as OCFS2 drives. Even if you try to format in character mode (e.g. using the command `/sbin/mkfs.ocfs2 -F ...`) the command succeeds, but while mounting the volume, it throws error 'mount.ocfs2: device or resource busy while mounting'.
