(SOLVED) Help to remove Unused Disk

I need to remove an unused disk from the hardware list of a VM, however the underlying local-lvm of this disk has been removed.

The error I get from the GUI is -

storage 'local-lvm' is not available on node

I'm guessing I will need to run some commands but have no idea what :)

Thanks for any help with this.

I got to this point through the process of rebuilding a host.
Followed this https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/reinstall-node-in-cluster.64281/
Which involved backing up and restoring configuration of the host.
I no longer have local-lvm as I replaced this with zfs

Error in syslog also
pvestatd[1866]: no such logical volume pve/data

Sorry think I solved it.

Edited /etc/pve/storage.cfg

Removed reference to local-lvm

Went back and was able to remove the drive through the GUI
