Re: [linux-lvm] disk naming



Patrick,

I was wondering if you could explain a little bit of how lvm finds a
device that no longer corresponds to the same 'dev/sd*' name. does it
use some kind of device id or serial number? I just want to be doubly
sure, as Steven Lembark claimed that it WOULDN't work..

Thanks,
