One of the fields (DM path state) is missing from the above output.
Looks like it failed to create mpath0 properly. Make sure you enable
'syslog' and send out the syslog out when you run "multipath -v3" 

Also, can you do read/write I/O to sda and sdc devices? Try reading
data from both of those devices using dd or something similar. The
following should do:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null count=10
dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/null count=10

Thanks, Malahal.
