Hi Christie, Is it safe to use active/passive multipath with krbd with exclusive lock for lio/tgt/scst/tcmu? Is it safe to use active/active multipath If use suse kernel with target_core_rbd? Thanks.

If you have the lock enabled then it bounces between paths for each IO and will be slow. If you do not have it enabled then you can end up with stale IO overwriting current data.
