Importing a Physical Volumen


hi guys

I'm added a new disk to my server (virtual environment)

It used to be a Volume Group=Vol_Group01
and Logical Volume= Log_Vol_01_Data

and I see /dev/sdb


Code:
Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/sdc: 133.1 GB, 133143986176 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 16187 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
But I don't know how to make the linux to read this this this import the physical volume, VG and LV?

just to let you know I removed it from another virtual server and I added to this one - identical suse 11 SP1 Servers

thanks a lot

Hi,

What exactly are you asking? Do you want to add the physical volume to an existing VG (Volume Group)? If so you'll first have to create a partition on it using for example fdisk:
Code:
fdisk /dev/sdb
The type should be 8e (Linux LVM). From there you can run pvcreate, vgextend and create new logical volumes or extend existing ones using the space added by adding the disk.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

No problem at all. Did you get your problem fixed? Or do you still have questions/issues with the disk(s) and LVM?

Kind regards,

Eric

Frankly I used the vgimport command and did not work so we ended up creating another volumen and we reinstalled the application

Hello,

That's one way to solve it. If you consider your problem solved, then please mark your thread as such. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric
