[Deepsea-users] Add management of disks/devices that already have partitions

Hi *,

as far as I have understood deepsea - it ignores all disks / devices that already have partitions.

This causes an additional effort to clean these disks manually before they can show up in profiles.

Would it be possible to enhance deepsea „not“ to ignore these disks?

IMO it would be great to discover them and add them to the proposals - maybe in a separate section of the files like „already partitioned“.

Then in a further step these disks could be specified / moved in the profiles by an administrator what then would allow to clear / use them with deepsea during deployment stage in case they are specified to be an OSD filesystem/journal/wal/db... (deepsea could clean the disks before putting OSD data on them).

IMP such a feature would allow a more complete disk management with deepsea...
