I just tried this but I'm having problems getting it to work..

# multipathd -k"resize map mpath-resize-test"

The underlying SCSI devices have been online resized already, and verified
from dmesg and from /proc/partitions to be bigger.

I'm running rhel5 kernel with scsi online resize patches (2.6.18-93.el5.bz444964.2)
and dm-multipath testing packages with support for online resizing

Any ideas?
