I was always wondering why my favorite distribution shows 
"Searching for braille display..." at boot-up. I guess I need
to rewrite my Xmas wish list... ;-)

yep, worked. But - grep is my friend - there is only a dmsetup command
in the evms init script which I don't use, of course. At system startup I
need to do the following:
 
fsrv1:~ # for i in `seq 1 3`; do dmsetup create lun$i dmtable.lun$i; done

Where is the usual place to put this? Or could multipathd care for this dmsetup? 

This for the reference:

fsrv1:~ # dmsetup ls
lun3    (253, 2)
lun2    (253, 1)
lun1    (253, 0)

fsrv1:~ # for i in dmtable.lun*; do echo "$i: `cat $i`; done
dmtable.lun0: 0  274968576 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdb round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdf
dmtable.lun1: 0 1374986240 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdc round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdg 
dmtable.lun2: 0 1374986240 multipath 2 round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdd round-robin 1 0 /dev/sdh

OK, you are right. There are other fruits than apples...

Well, I may write some additions to fill the gaps I stumbled accross.
