Thanks Andreas,

I understand that this is a common issue with failover, as mentioned in the Lustre documentation.

We use multipath in all our configurations. However, will Lustre be able to detect if the connectivity to the storage has been totally lost ( ie. no available path ) and display accordingly on /proc/fs/lustre/health_check?
