I am adding a second drive to my system (SuSE 9.2 = kernel 2.6.xyz), and I am tempted to enable LVM for seamless integration of the two drives. Is this a good idea?
I am worried about the robustness of the resulting system. For instance, what would happen if one of the drives would die? Does LVM ensure a single file always sits on a single drive in its entirely, or will it scatter files around (and, in the event of a single drive death, leave partial and broken stuff behind)?
Any advise, recommendations, warnings, alternatives, .... ?
