We have 3 VG's that have device files associated to them:
root@xxxxxx at / =>ll /dev | grep vgL
drwxr-xr-x 2 root sys 96 Jul 19 02:33 vgL01
drwxr-xr-x 2 root sys 96 Jul 19 02:45 vgL11
drwxr-xr-x 2 root sys 96 Jul 19 02:48 vgL13
They cannot be vgdisplayed or wgexported, nor are they in the lvmtab.
They don't seem to exist.
Is it as simple as just deleting these files or are there any other commands I can try

If they're not in /etc/lvmtab, or if running 11.31 and using VG 2.x volume groups the lvmtab_p file, then chances are you can just remove the directories from /dev without any problems.

Without any entries in lvmtab, these are just simple directories and files. They can be removed.
Why they are there can only be guessed but they can certainly be recreated. The only purpose of the directory is to hold the group and lvol special files.
