- /sbin/multipath does not print a warning when multipathd (the daemon) is not running.
- The /sbin/multipath command will display the existing multipath topology when the daemon is not running. This can result in confusion when additional LUNs are presented to the system but do not have corresponding multipath devices created due to the daemon being stopped.
