Hy Florian,

I checked your configuration hint and you are right, multipath ignores my 
defaults {
        no_path_retry           fail
#       udev_dir                /dev
#       polling_interval        10
#       selector                "round-robin 0"
#       path_grouping_policy    multibus
#       getuid_callout          "/lib/udev/scsi_id --whitelisted 
#       prio                    const
#       path_checker            directio
#       rr_min_io               100
#       flush_on_last_del       no
#       max_fds                 8192
#       rr_weight               priorities
#       failback                immediate
#       no_path_retry           fail
#       user_friendly_names     no
#       mode                    644
#       uid                     0
#       gid                     disk

Maybe it's wrong configured, but to be sure, I also have a call @ novell 
running, why "no_path_retry fail" is ignored.

Usually a consequence of configuring multipathd to queue I/O
indefinitely when all paths fail. Do "multipath -ll" and look for
