Multipath devices missing symlinks or other multipath related mappings

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Device timeouts or other issues during reboot caused by missing multipath partition mappings or missing symlinks associated with the multipath device itself. Note, only the symlinks or the dmsetup info are missing; the partition, itself, is still intact on-disk and the base multipath device is healthy.
