StorNext (cvfs) filesystem started / activated but won't mount on MDS (RHEL 5/6)

Be sure the multipath daemon (multipathed) must be disabled and /etc/multipath.conf renamed otherwise StorNext will not be able to mount the file system and will return:

  • mount.cvfs: Can´t mount filesystem ‘snfs1’: Device or resource busy—System log may contain additional information

dmesg / messages log will display:

  • CvOpenOnePath: Open Failed, disk <test123> error 6 device </dev/sdan>—Could not mount filesystem snfs1, cvfs error ‘File is busy’ (6)


* It is suggested to verify that the Linux Device-Mapper Multipath (DMMultipath) rpms are removed from the system.
