Description of problem:
While trying to bring up cluster (Using ceph-ansible) on hosts on which an existing cluster was purged, OSD creation was failed on all the nodes with stderr - 'Device /dev/sdb excluded by a filter'
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Purge an existing cluster
2. Try to bring up clusters with lvm based OSDs.
stderr: Device /dev/sdb excluded by a filter
Clusters must be configured
Got to know that it is possible that device might have a GPT header and user needs to make sure that the device is fully wiped/zapped.
