If you trying to blacklist a device and it is still showing or when you
run multipath -v 4 the device is not listed as blacklisted then there is
most likely a problem in /etc/multipath.conf

Are you using "devnode_blacklist" as indicated in the instructions.

I believe this is incorrect and you should use something like:

blacklist {
        devnode "sda"
