Quote:
Currently up to 99 volume groups with a grand total of 256 logical volumes can be created. The limit for the logical volumes is not caused by the LVM but by Linux 8 bit device minor numbers. This means that you can have 99 volume groups with 1-3 logical volumes each or on the other hand 1 volume group with up to 256 logical volumes or anything in between these extreme examples.
