Goal

Installing APM on an OEL 5.x or higher system that automatically updates via yum may break the multipath tool functionality.

 

To determine whether a Yum update has broken multipath tools or its
dependencies on your Oracle Linux 5 host running APM, run the following
command:

#multipath -v3 -ll

The Yum update has broken multipath tools or its dependencies if the command
returns a blank result, or if you see the following message:


prio: sd*: couldn't get target port group (errno 22)
