Fixed In Version: device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-119.el7.1
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Device Mapper Multipath (DM Multipath) now supports the "protocol" configuration option in the "blacklist" and "blacklist_exceptions" configuration sections. This enables you to blacklist or whitelist paths based on the protocol they use, such as "scsi" or "nvme". For SCSI devices, you can also specify the transport: for example "scsi:fcp" or "scsi:iscsi".

Please note that in the "Fixed in version" filed, device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-119.el7.1 is reporter while in comment 6 the following version is reported:

root@storageqe-06 ~]# rpm -qa | grep multipath 

On my host with CentOS 7.5, I see that the version is 0.4.9-119.el7_5.1.x86_64.

Can you please confirm that the version indeed is 0.4.9-119.el7_5.1.x86_64?
