That sounds as if the paths (SCSI block devices) where removed before
multipath had a chance to flush its map(s).

You are sure about the order of the service stops? If you stop iscsi and
remove the devices before multipath flushes the maps, you will end up in
the situation described.
2) vgchange -an if LVM is used on LUNs
3) flush multipaths
4) stop iscsi
