The installer has full support for multipath devices, so why not just
use that? Or why have you enabled multipathd service, without
configuring it in full first?

  System will not start with multipathd enabled

Status in Ubuntu on IBM z Systems:
Status in multipath-tools package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If I do these three commands on a fresh Ubuntu clone which has one
  pair of FCP devices pointing to a LUN:

  # apt-get -y install multipath-tools
  # systemctl enable multipathd
  # reboot

  The system will not come back up. It seems to spin with the messages:
  “A start job is running for Device-M...vice Controller (<x> / 1min
  30s)”  In 90 seconds it times out and starts counting again.
