Configure LVM as mirrored AND linear?
I'm looking for Magical Wonder Volumes.
I want to be able to add a physical drive to an existing filesystem, and PRESTO! That filesystem has more storage and/or redundancy. When one of the physical drives eventually fail, no problem, I’ve lost some redundancy, I just have to install a new drive before another one fails.
Let’s assume I have 4 physical drives.
Please, *What Is This Configuration? *

I’ve read ""

But I am unclear if I can make a logical volume that is mirrored and linear.
Thank you so much

The last time I tried software RAID 1 (dm-x) under lvm, it was very fragile. Systemd could not start it, and then an update to mdadm put a stake through its heart. So I know that does not work.
