Questions About Configuring Multipath Devices into Logical Volume [Linux]

I'm trying to create a logical volume in RHEL 5 from a volume on my Nimble SAN.

 

Where I am lost is, once multipathing is configured and both NICs are bound to the software iSCSI initiator, I see two multipath devices showing in fdisk (dm-2 and dm-3).

 

Do I partition both devices and add them into a single logical volume, or have I done something wrong?

 

What I have done so far (following the guide provided by Nimble):

  • Created the volume on the Nimble and assigned the initiator group from the Linux host to it.
  • Configured both NICs (separate subnets) and bound them to the iSCSI software initiator.
  • Configured multipathing.
  • Discovered targets.
  • Logged into targets.
