Manage disks on an existing system with LVM


Hi,

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

Doris

Hello,

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

Check this site out:

http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl8_lvm.htm

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.....

It's 'man' time
