The kernel will not allow multipath to reload a table with a failed path in it.
Multipath is unable to reconfigure a multipath device while multipathd is running. This includes being unable to add new paths to the device.
First stop multipathd (service multipathd stop). Then run multipath to reconfigure the device. Finally restart multipathd.
running the multipath command while multipathd is stopped will cause multipath to remove the failed path from the device table when it reconfigures. This will allow the new path to be added. However, when the failed path comes back online, it will no longer be part of the multipath device. Multipath must be manually run again to reintegrate this device. However, if there are no failed paths, it will not be necessary to stop multipathd before doing this.
Technical note added, change this bug into verify mode.

I can not find this technical note anywhere.. I looked in the release notes document and in the latest multipath document on doc.redhat.com. There is not a technical notes document in 4.x as there is for RHEL5.. so can I find out where this was documented for the customer.
Thanks in advance.
