Re: [linux-lvm] Very newbie question (LVM+NFS)

No, it is impossible that way. NFS mounts are not partitions, but 
exported filesystems. They don't have e.g. a device entry on the client. 
 
If you want to use lvm, you need a block DEVICE, e.g. a harddisk. Usually 
this appears as /dev/sda, /dev/hda, /dev/rd/c0d0 etc. There are ways 
to export block devices over a network, e.g. "iscsi" - you export a 
device and get a new "scsi"-device on the client. This is a possible lvm 
target (am I wrong here?). 
 
Good luck, CU Lars.
