|- 9:0:0:138 sdkn 66:432 active undef running
|- 54:0:0:138 sdqr 132:432 active undef running
`- 70:0:0:138 sdzm 131:512 active undef running

With multipath you won't want to configure the "four disks" individually. You just want to work with mpath2. For example if you want to put a partition table on the disk, call "fdisk mpath2". Under the covers there really is only one disk here. The four names you see are just different ways to access the same disk.
