Manage disks on an existing system with LVM
I have a Linux computer (Fedora Core 3) and the hard disk is formated with LVM. Now I want to add a new disk and combine it with the existing one into the same logical partition. What is right prcedure and are there tools to manage the LVM disks? I know SUSE provides a tool called YaST to do LVM management after I searched the web.
Since I formated the first disk as LVM volume when I install the OS, I don't know how to do the second disk on an existing system.
Any suggestions are welcome
I'm not sure about LVM on Linux. Especially in a SuSE gui.
However, the commands would be pvcreate for format the disk and vgextend to add a disk to vg00

Basically, what you are suggesting is quite feasible. But you may have to do it from the Command line.
Let me know how you get on.....
