With RHEL6 on a SAN environment, is it possible to display dead paths with "multipath"?

With RHEL6 on a SAN environment, is it possible to display dead paths with "multipath" ?

This is the output of "multipath -ll" a RHEL4 server :

data (360050768028107fac00000000000009f)
[size=150 GB][features="1 queue_if_no_path"][hwhandler="0"]
_ round-robin 0 [enabled]
 _ 3:0:0:2 sde 8:64 [failed][faulty]
 _ 4:0:0:2 sdm 8:192 [failed][faulty]
_ round-robin 0 [prio=20][active]
 _ 3:0:1:2 sdi 8:128 [active][ready]
 _ 4:0:1:2 sdq 65:0 [active][ready]

We can see failed paths. And this is the output on RHEL6 :

sata (360050768028107fac0000000000000d0) dm-3 IBM,2145
size=170G features='1 queue_if_no_path' hwhandler='0' wp=rw
`-+- policy='round-robin 0' prio=10 status=active
 |- 4:0:1:1 sdf 8:80 active ready running
 `- 3:0:1:1 sdj 8:144 active ready running

Increasing the verbose level of "multipath" doesn't work (the "/etc/multipath.conf" file is classic on both systems).

logged in to rhel 6.4 using Putty using ssh. Installed the GNOME desktop environment, using this command:

yum groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE Desktop"

Now, followed steps below:

  1. Run the following command to edit the /etc/inittab file: vi /etc/inittab
  2. Press the *I* key to enter insert mode.
  3. Find the line that includes the text initdefault. Change the numeral 3 to 5.
  4. Type :wq and press the *Enter* key to save the file and exit the *vi* text editor.

    Reboot the system using the reboot command. Your system will restart and present a graphical login

The problem is after reboot, grapghical login is not displayed. I tried running command vncserver got output:
