I have below linux script

 cre_disk=$(ls /dev/sd[b-z])
    for disk in $cre_isk
    pvcreate $i

My understanding from the above code is, it is checking the sdb,sdc..sdz disk file. if it exist, then do physical volume creation.

what my requirement is, need to convert the above linux into puppet(lvm creation). I know the command for physical volume creation

physical volume{'/dev/sdb':
ensure => 'present'

I am not sure how to check the physical disk (cre_disk=$(ls /dev/sd[b-z])). is there any resource available or puppet would take care without any resource.

NOTE:I have posed this same question in different format in previous question post. Please ignore the topic name is, "check physical disk directory"

Puppet is a configuration management system. It is intended for managing Packages, Files, and Services (called the trifecta).

What you are looking to do falls outside of the scope of puppets abilities. lvm creation should be done via a script, or as part of the provisioning process.
