Are there any tips on converting an existing ext3 / to LVM?
Be carefull; as I know converting an EXISTING ext3 to LVM loses all data. Jean-Luc, can you confirm this ??
Tell us *how* you plan to convert it to lvm.
Reading section 12.3 on the LVM HowTo; there is no good way migrating an existing filesystem ( with data) to lvm ! I'm in doubt if LVM is very usefull following what this howto recommend. EVMS more suitable? mess-mate Sorry, I mean 12.1
I don't find it neither, do you have any reference? http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/index.html
