We do not manage removal of devices from hosts. Even if you remove the device manually, we will find and it back when we do iscsi and fc scan, to find new devices or to resize existing devices. Devices and sessions are cleaned up when you deactivate a storage domain, or put the host to maintenance. > If i don't do this step manually i end up with a syslog with error messages > from multipath and stale iscsi session which potentially can make ovirt > storage fail. Since EL 7.2 and on Fedora 22 or later, you may get error messages about such stale devices, but it should not effect ovirt storage. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/880738 If it still does not work for you, please open a bug about it, describing the use case.
