Is it possible to extend my VG and then LV to an attached usb drive ?


I have a dell poweredge server, running RHEL-AS(Taroon Update 4) 2.4.21 27.ELsmp (32-bit), and one of its partition(LVM) is full. No scope of attaching discs internally. Now I want to attach an external USB drive(1TB) and extend my LV to that. Is it possible to do it? Anyone has tried ? If yes what would be the brief steps.

--Thanks
