Comment 7 for bug 306723

For people using Intrepid, you can work around that bug by setting getuid_callout somewhere in /etc/multipath.conf. In my case, the following worked with an EMC SAN:

defaults {
        default_getuid_callout "/lib/udev/scsi_id -g -u -ppre-spc3-83 -d /dev/%n"

Ideally, getuid_callout would be defined in a device stanza instead of defaults, but the above would work in a pinch if your machine is connected to a single SAN.

Is there any plan to do a SRU for Intrepid? I think it would worth it, as otherwise multipath-tools is DOA. I can help with testing.
