Hmm. First of all, I'm trying to get rid of the PID file, as with it
it's quite hard to start multipathing when /var/run isn't mounted.
Plus it's not actually needed; everything can be done via multipathd
-k nowadays.

Agreed

So may I suggest to use
ExecReload=/sbin/multipathd -k'reconfigure'

Or even:
ExecReload=multipathd reconfigure

That works? Cool.

Bet it's not documented in the manpage ...

Cheers,

Hannes
