Is there a way to configure local.conf to disable support for lvm during a DevStack install in Cinder.conf?

I want to use/install another storage driver during the DevStack installation but the LVM section is populated and causing me issues when creating volumes

#volume_clear = none
#volume_group = stack-volumes-lvmdriver-1
#volume_driver = cinder.volume.drivers.lvm.LVMISCSIDriver
#volume_backend_name = lvmdriver-1

I would like to not have this added to Cinder.conf during DevStack install

lvm is set as defualt cinder driver, you can change this by adding following parameter to your localrc file. CINDER_DRIVER=<ur_choice> //make sure your devstack directory: lib/cinder_backends contains the backend you want to use as cinder backend driver. And all the default settings will be applied for your chose ceph backend

Yes we can skip lvm installation by configuring CINDER-DRIVER in devstack/localrc file.
