You are not missing anything. The device id is too big to fit in
multipath tools allocated memory. The program incorrectly prints that
there is a problem while executing /sbin/scsi_id but in fact the problem
lies in the program itself. You may have some old version of multipath
tools. WWID_SIZE was set to 64 bytes and that is small for your device.
Get the latest version where that macro is set to 128 or so.

Hope that helps!
