SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 4 (SLES 11 SP4)

Manually restarting multipath using "rcmultipathd restart" or forcing a devmap reload using "multipath -r" once the server is up and running after a reboot may resolve the issue until the next reboot.
It likely will also be required to make changes to the network switch configurations, for example disabling switch assisted load balancing.
