Re: [linux-lvm] How do I properly backup and restore / on LVM2



Hello,

Maybe you can try

lvcreate -L 2.5g -s -n rsnap /dev/rootvg/rootlv


Already faced this kind of situation on previous RH releases (4.3 ?) where /dev/mapper could not (yet) be used with some LVM commands.

Hi Folks,

Read through the doc and tried to create a snapshot lv for rootlv by doing, but failed.
