Am I correct to understand that multi-path will survive up to N-1
switch failure and not just one switch if I used more than two
switches? If so, then I can see that I wouldn't need raid on top of
-> Disk export as 192.168.1.10, 192.168.2.10 and 192.168.3.10 to 3
different physical switch?

I was pondering over the need of RAID on top of multi-path but wasn't
sure if multi-path alone would be enough.
Would running LVM, for flexibility in expanding volume sizes, on top
of iSCSI be badly affected as well?
