LVM for Linux (Enterprise 3.0)?


I would be open to any suggestions for a Logical Volume Management software for Linux. Either open source or fee. It looks like Red Hat does have it's own LV options (during the install phase), but nothing that can be added later (from what I've been able to determine.)
The OS is installed; the data drives are on a SAN; now we just need some LV software to control the SAN disks.

I' saw that IBM has something available for this type of setup, however, we don' know if it would be the "right" choice.

Thank you for your input!

LVM is there afterwards... man pvcreate, man vgcreate, man lvcreate, etc.

Visibility of SAN storage might be an issue though... you'll have to tell us what works
and what doesn't for you.

I saw the Red Hat LVM stuff, but wasn't sure if it would be a good option. We will give it a try!

Thanks for your response!
