Can we use NFS disk for increasing LVM space


I have a Linux server with LVM configured disk in it, now i had run out of space and i can't add another HDD to server as there are no more slots to add another HDD. I wanted to know if i can configure another server as NFS server and use the NFS shared disk to increase LVM of the existing server??

No, NFS is not a block device, there is no device to reference. You can mount some NFS space within the directory structure of an LVM volume and move a section of the space out there. Alternatively you can use iSCSI for LVM as that IS a block device to the system.
