This subcommand is used to zap lvs or partitions that have been used by ceph OSDs so that they may be reused. If given a path to a logical volume it must be in the format of vg/lv. Any filesystems present on the given lv or partition will be removed and all data will be purged.


The lv or partition will be kept intact.

Zapping a logical volume:

ceph-volume lvm zap {vg name/lv name}

Zapping a partition:

ceph-volume lvm zap /dev/sdc1
