creating logical volume of exact specified size
 
I want to create lv of exact specified size ,

eg. If 2.5GB specified it should be exact 2.5GB and not round up
of extents.
How can I do it.

Using LVM2

Thank You

Not possible as to best of my knowledge. Whatever size we give in lvcreate commands, it rounds up automatically.

But, why do you want to have an exact size ?
