Hi Denny

In the meantime I'm running 6.3-1 with the latest updates and my workaround delaying the start of the lvm2-pvscan at .service still works (see below).



root at pve:~# systemctl edit lvm2-pvscan at .service
root at pve:~# cat /etc/systemd/system/lvm2-pvscan at .service.d/override.conf
# Ensure that multipath discovery finishes before LVM pvscan
ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 10
root at pve:~#

I want to say also: I have this same issue on one from 7 nodes. All
nodes where (more or less) identical (Puppet), but one node has also the
problem, that pvscan / prefers the direct device (/dev/sdd, over
multipath (/dev/mpathd).

PVE is the latest 6.x

I try with rd.lvm.conf=0 and looking, if it helps.
