enable multipath at setup time


Aug 23, 2019
Hi, dear all,
how do i enable multipath support at Proxmox install time? I'd like to install proxmox to multipathed storage, but now i can see only separate pathes to my dedicated for proxmox... Is there any magic key?
Yes, i did. It says

The default installation does not include this package, so you first need to install the multipath-tools package:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install multipath-tools
Is it really so? Do i understand it correct and there is no way to install proxmox on multipathed device?
Btw, https://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/MultipathSupport says i could be able to enable multipath by setting disk-detect/multipath/enable=true option to the installer prompt... Isnt it the same installer used by proxmox? Feel lost...
Could be a new feature request :-D

Setup should be fairly easy:
- include multipath tools
- scan also multipath location in /dev/mapper for possible installation targets

Yes, it would be nice. How can i tag this as a feature request?
