The cli has a syntax help message, accessed using 'help' or whatever

The relevant commands are:

disable/enable the specified path checking in multipathd


Thanks for your continued help. Perhaps I am using the incorrect tools.
Neither the 'multipath' command or the interactive mode of the
multipathd daemon (multipath -k) have any of those directives documented
under the 'help' listing, nor do they respond to them when I use them as
you specify above. What CLI command are you using with those directives?
Like:

%cli_command% reinstate path $path

'multipathd -khelp' on most distro-shipped multipath-tools.
'multipathd help' is also possible with upstream.

Yes, I understand that. If I run 'multipathd -k' and then help, these are the commands that are listed:

     list|show paths
     list|show maps
     add path $path
     remove|del path $path
     add map $map
     remove|del map $map
     switch|switchgroup map $map group $group
     dump pathvec
     reconfigure
     disablequeueing map $map
     restorequeueing map $map


Where are the 'reinstate path' or 'fail path' directives you mention in this thread? In case this is a version issue, we are running with version device-mapper-multipath-0.4.7-30.el5_4.4. What version are you running where the 'reinstate path' or 'fail path' directives are listed in help or otherwise function?
