hey peaple, i'm trying to install a storage node to use with openstack, this procedure requires installing LVM on this particular node, so i try to follow the official guide but i get this problem (check the title) whenever i try to execute "pvcreate /dev/sda".

error : device dev/sda not found or ignored by filtering

i checked the file lvm.config under /etc/lvm and i have nothing filtered.

searched for all possible solutions online and tried most of them but nothing worked.

any help would be appreciated, thank you,

Check for verbose output just in case if you get any additional information: pvcreate -vvv /dev/sda.

Is the device part of multipathing solution ?
