RE: [linux-lvm] Beginner Questions



Thanks Alasdair, but where did the ~475 GB's go on the second? Is there some limit on PV size, I can't find anything with Google (Not that I can see 1024GB being a likely figure).

Thanks!

Some space is used for LVM metadata; other space is lost as the
remainder when the volume size is divided by the chosen extent size.

Ignore the ridiculous number there - it's been fixed in CVS for the next
release.
