Re: [linux-lvm] Why can't I extend a LV after many times extends?



Thanks for your help.

I have seen someone mentioned there is some limits when using strip.

like this:
http://linux.msede.com/lvm_mlist/archive/2002/11/0235.htm

It saids: 
"Once you create a striped lv, you cannot extend it by adding
more disks. Current lvm version anyway."

Is there any limits in current lvm2 code about strip ?
