Sorry, I didn't clarify in my original email but our iSCSI SAN makes use
of multipath, so the way we currently use proxmox with it is to use the
LVM on network backed storage like in the storage model on the wiki.  Does
what you suggest work in this type of environment?  I'm not sure how to
get direct access to the LUN with the multipath configuration that we use.
 Am I just misunderstanding how that would work?
