[linux-lvm] Volume group inconsistent

My multipath devices have an alias to plt-XX instead of the default name

I can create new volumes with lvcreate, but after 3 or 4 new volumes my VG
pass to inconsistent status because 24 disks stay in missing status, I
don't know why. Do you think that the lvm cannot write properly?

My disks are provided by IBM storage DS8000 but I don't have access the
configuration. Those devices was working properly until last friday since
august 2014.

When I restore my backup with vgcfgrestore, my VG return active without
problem, then I believe I don't have problens with write properly. Do you
have any idea or a test to do? I cannot shut off this VG now because it's
active and used by virtual servers, I have a big problem now.

I created a new VG to create new volumes but I'd like fix this one.
