Is it a good practice in the first place? How reliable is it? Let's say I have partition with important data. Can I create PV, VG, LV and mount it with salt states and sleep well? What about having mkfs in salt?

Could it happen that salt will freak out and re-create everything erasing my data?

Snippet of my config:

/dev/sdd:
  lvm.pv_present

data_vg:
  lvm.vg_present:
  - devices: /dev/sdd

lv_data:
  lvm.lv_present:
  - vgname: data_vg
  - size: 999.9G

Mount lvm storage:
  mount.mounted:
    - name: /important_data
    - device: /dev/mapper/data_vg-lv_data
    - fstype: xfs
    - opts:
        - defaults
    - mkmnt: True
    - persist: True
