I'm going to hot remove some LUNS that were used as storage domains from a
4.4.7 environment.
I have already removed them for oVirt.
I think I would use the remove_mpath_device.yml playbook if I find it... it
seems it should be in examples dir inside ovirt ansible collections, but
there is not...
Anyway I'm aware of the corresponding manual steps of (I think version 8
doesn't differ from 7 in this):

. get disks name comprising the multipath device to remove

. remove multipath device
multipath -f "{{ lun }}"

. flush I/O
blockdev --flushbufs {{ item }}
for every disk that was comprised in the multipath device

. remove disks
echo 1 > /sys/block/{{ item }}/device/delete
for every disk that was comprised in the multipath device

My main doubt is related to the LVM structure that I can see is yet present
on the multipath devices.

Eg for a multipath device 360002ac0000000000000013e0001894c:
# pvs --config 'devices { filter = ["a|.*|" ] }' | grep

So the question is:
would it be better to execute something like
lvremove for every LV lv_name
lvremove --config 'devices { filter = ["a|.*|" ] }'

vgremove --config 'devices { filter = ["a|.*|" ] }'

pvremove --config 'devices { filter = ["a|.*|" ] }'

and then proceed with the steps above or nothing at all as the OS itself
doesn't "see" the LVMs and it is only an oVirt view that is already "clean"?
Also because LVM is not cluster aware, so after doing that on one node, I
would have the problem about LVM rescan on other nodes....
