Re: [linux-lvm] Best way to create a 540GB LVM Volume?

use bigger physical extents to create volumes up to the (LVM-limited?)
max size of 1TB.  my physical extents are (I think) 64MB so logically I
should be able to make an 8TB volume (no pun intended) but presumably
due to wackiness in the kernel (VFS or VM, don't know) Heinz chose not
to allow that.  probably preventing me from shooting myself in the foot.

I think this is in the FAQ, regardless, a careful read of the manpage
will reveal this and other useful tidbits.  I think you will have to
recreate your VG and/or LV, but the initialized PV's should be okay.

try it and see :-)
