Looks like multipath DIE when i restore backups.
I have a Dell Powervault MD36xxi

Any have MD36xxi works with proxmox with multipaths?
I try some configs, but same result

Thanks a regards

You could easily remove multipath from the equation and test on just a single path. That will atleast tell you if it has anything to do with multipath.

¿any idea? How is possible? It is only iSCSI + LVM with no multipath!

I make other tests, to discard multipath fail.

I create a Qemu machine, on iSCSI LVM, install debian 8. With ACTIVE MULTIPATH.
Created ok. Multipath works. I drop with iptables conection to Powervault, and they work with other paths.

I think that the problem are on RESTORE qemu machine. For some reason, scsi_id is used in the restore process. And appear scsi_id not work good...

¿Any idea?
