Re: [linux-lvm] Cloning Logical Volumes

dd is probably the best way right now.

in the future, the clone would probably take the form:
prompt> lvconvert -m1 vg/lv; (wait for sync); lvsplit vg/lv

The syntax isn't worked out yet and lvsplit is not there yet... but we have talked about doing something like that.

Hello there folks.  I have a question.
I am looking for a better way of cloning logical volumes then creating a new logical volume, identical to a source logical volume, and using “dd” to copy data between the two logical volumes.
I would love to use dm-mirror to do this, but I do not think any interface has been provided to do this yet.
All suggestions and ideas appreciated.
I am running lvm2-2.02.04-r1 & 2.6.15 kernel.
