We are planning to setup RAC with two node on Redhat Linux. We want to
use RAW devices with multipath using Hitachi 9970. We could see shared
storage from both the nodes. Cluster Verify fails with following error


 [oracle@soadbstg01 cluvfy]$ ./runcluvfy.sh comp ssa -n

Verifying shared storage accessibility

Checking shared storage accessibility...

Unable to determine the sharedness of /dev/sda on nodes:

Shared storage check failed on nodes "soadbstg02,soadbstg01".
Oracle (cvuqdisk) is looking for /dev/sd* location. RAW Partitions are
configured as /dev/oracleocr. Is there a way to bypass default location?

/usr/sbin/cvuqdisk seems to look for /dev/sd*
trying to pass /dev/oracleocr/ocr01 doesn't seem to work.
Is there a way to pass an alternate device path?
