Are logical volumes images ?


Hi,

Are logical volumes like images (.img, .iso) ?
I created a Logical Volume thinking it will be a regular volume.
When I went in to the /dev/VolGroup00 it shows only files having the name of the Logical Volumes /dev/VolGroup00/lv01

How should I read content from this lv01 ?

The closest analogy to a lv is a partition - you need to format a filesystem within it, and then mount it.
Go to tldp.org and get the LVM how-to for some good background.

Hi,

I have mounted /dev/VolGroup00 to /XEN
When I created the Logical Volume "lv01" It created a file /XEN/lv01
So lv01 / ANY LV is LIKE an image right ?
How to read contents within this ?

Regards,
ME
