However, now we want to move to latest version of Heketi and it looks like Heketi does not accept this symlink as device configuration. Among all, this is the only symlink ("/dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:00:10.0-scsi-0:0:1:0") which is available for a raw disk.

We updated the validation code to allow colons in device paths. Some
of the users as using scsi lun device paths that don't seem to have
colons in them.
