There are many, many, many things that could be happening there, and
it's not usually trivial doing the RCA, so the following questions are
just me hoping this is something "easy" to find out.
What os-brick version from Queens are you running? Latest (2.3.9), or
maybe one older than 2.3.3?
When you say you have faulty devices reported, are these faulty devices
alone in the multipath DM? Or do you have some faulty ones with some
that are ok?
If there are some OK and some that aren't, are they consecutive devices?
(as in /dev/sda /dev/sdb etc).
