I have been fighting with an issue on CentOS 7.6.1801 on a HP over HW RAID. I searched a lot and tried many options about I still can't fix this. May be I overlook something. I hope someone can spot it.

# pvcreate /dev/sdb Device /dev/sdb excluded by a filter.

# lsblk /dev/sdb NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sdb 8:16 0 6.6T 0 disk

/etc/lvm/lvm.conf : filter = ["a|^/dev/sda2$|", "r|.*|"] global_filter = ["a|/dev/sdb |"]

==========

(parted) print

You overlooked some whitespace.

global_filter = ["a|/dev/sdb |"]

Did you miss the space after sdb? That should not be there. If you are trying to match /dev/sdb, then this will fail to match because of the space.
