I mean new multipath.conf version:

    # RHEV REVISION 1.1

When vdsm finds that its current configuration version is different from current
multipath.conf version, it replaces the current multipath.conf with a new 
version.

This is why vdsm replaced the file.

In 3.5.1 it should rotate multipath.conf, saving multipath.conf.1 ...

If you don't find the backup file after multipath.conf was updated, this is a

Can you open a a bug about it?
