Make a directory to mount it on, for example:

mkdir /mnt/newdisk

Then mount it:

mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/newdisk

If no sdd1 is present that means there is no partitions on the disk.  In that case you need to use fdisk to create partitions.

Is this a new drive, or an old drive with data?  Do not use fdisk if the drive has data on it already.

Run the following command:

ls /dev/sdd*

Sorry ,I have not given enough information. I found that an iscsi lun which is connected to this appliance.
I notice that there is an entry in the /etc/lvm/cahe/.cache file about this disk in the appliance.
Look like this disk is in the lvm group.
I do not know much about linux.
Is there anyway i can remove this disk from a group ?
the device is /dev/sad

check in #pvs.

if device is being used in any PV.. remove it first and if not then you can try removing .cache file
