Re: [linux-lvm] Addiing new hdd to pv group



Heinz,

well yes, after doing a makewhatis i found the vgextend command and that was absolutely what I was looking for.

I also followed som eadvice from this list and excluded autoconfig.h from liblvm.h and compiling went smoothly on my RH 7.2.93 box. Just if anybody wanted to know...

Thanks,
Stephan

Stephan,


recent LVM versions have a pvresize command, which can add the space of
a grown partition/device to a physical volume stored in that partition.

You can't combine seperate devices (like 2 different disks) this way.

If hdd is a free disk, just run pvcreate on it and use vgextend to add it
to one of your existing volume groups.

Hi,

is it possible to expand an existing pv with an additional hdd, without
loosing data, of course?

Thanks,
Stephan
