Actually I thought that LVM had been modelled upon AIX's LVM when I
first started using it; the commands are very similar.

Actually, it gives me an idea for AIX compatiblity wrappers (possibly
something else for the TODO list if it hasn't filled up the LV
already, then again you can always lvextend it:-)

    Heinz> BTW: what's unfortunate IYO with the HP/UX LVM? :-)

Sorry, I meant HP/UX OS itself (not from personal experience but the
years of reading of non-standard HP/UX command, libraries, etc., then
again AIX has had it share of those).


Anyway, thats to you and others who had a hand in LVM. It makes
using Linux as easy (on the FS side) as its been to use AIX for the
years I've admining it (almost 10 now).



Your mouse has moved.
Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now?  [OK]
