Question about LVM
Some weeks ago, someone on this forum introduced me to the wonders of LVM. For that, I am greatful. Until now, I hadn't had the time to work on setting that system up. I have now begun doing so step by step. Well, today I was creating the partitions I needed when I noticed that there is a specific partition id for LVM. I am a bit confused because it seemed to me from what I read that pvcreate will work on any type of partition and even on software RAID devices. So, should I use that partition id or is it something old that is no longer necessary? If I do need to use that partition id, what do I do about the software raid devices Im going to include in a volume group (since RAID has its own partition ID)? Thanks for your help.
