I had 2 drives failed over the long weekend. I put in new drives, ran /usr/local/bin/midclt call notifier.multipath_sync. It returned "null". When I go to replace either failed disk I do not get multipath drives, only da.

Right now, we have a LSI 9300-8i plugged in, both SAS ports plugging into the front backplane. Everything...
