Thanks Roger, Zdenek,

I have my ZVOL on my NAS exposed as LUNs. The initiator were switched off
and for unknown reason I found my NAS switched off as well.
It had run for long and I feared the worst (CPU/motherboard/etc). Instead
once powered up everything started to work again but the LUNs that seemed
to jeopardized.
I have many ZVOLs used by ESXi in which I have EVE-NG who uses LVM and such
ZVOLs have the same size so I wanted to inspect them to check the hostname.

Now some LUNs started to work normally, some others still behave weirdly. I
will run pvs on them with extra debugs to see what's going on.

Many thanks,

Alex
