Hi!

I never heard of "xdisk". Also I decided to use MD for RAID, and not LVM, because the Linux implementation needs a third device to handle the mirror log, while MD can host a bitmap on the members itself. In my setup I'd partition the MD-device, then create an LVM physical volume in one of the partitions...

Regards,
Ulrich
