Well if you have DRBD set to on-io-error detach, and you disconnect all
paths to your storage device, and you issue some sort of I/O on the
device, and DRBD does not detach, then it never received an I/O error.

And if you've configured your multipath.conf to "no_path_retry fail",
and it still queues I/O indefinitely, then that would be a dm-multipath
problem. Please double-check with
and if that doesn't turn up a configuration error, please turn to
dm-devel at redhat.com.

Let us know what your findings are. Thanks!
