Hello experts,

We added a new multipath device whose name is like this 3600143801259e1140000400001360000, we want to make a alias md_disk3 for this.

To make the alias take into effect, we have to restart multipath service with command service multipath restart.

I am afraid that if the existing multipath disks are affected during the multipath service restart, (for example, I/O error...) is it right?

Thanks & Best Regards,
Tong Ning
