I am using Rocky release and configuring for NVMe backend with LVM. Can you please tell me how this one might flow, or redirect me to the documentation?
I have not been able to found much documentation regarding this.

In case I require any more volumes, the same are going to be provisioned by the Storage node, and then can be attached to the VM.
