Description (partial)


ProvisionAPI.setLunDevicePath invokes the "scsi_device_map" external program.
scsi_device_map may return an error code, but ProvisionAPI.setLunDevicePath
does not check for errors.

As a result, the device path name may be set to an empty string, which causes
errors later.


This happened on my testbed while trying to perform a  model server snapshot.
    stderr  log:  Device /dev/sda is marked offline

A separate issue is to find out why /dev/sda was marked offline.
