Re: [linux-lvm] the lvm shared storage question of the week



Our testing group has machines that use AOE. It works well with CLVM. However, they use their machines as a cluster. It seems to me that you want to carve up your storage, but you only want one machine to use each piece.

LVM manual briefly mentions CLVM (should apply equally well to debian):
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/Cluster_Logical_Volume_Manager/index.html

You will want to come up to speed on the cluster infrastructure (at least the setup) if you want to use CLVM....

Hello there,

Is there any hint or any links anyone could share for the use of lvm on an AOE storage (shared block device over the network). I wanted to know how to create lvm group on a device that is shared among several host.


so i use debian 4 servers that acces a AOE target drive. The servers all mount the etherdrive and i want to use lvm to partition this 4Terabyte block device in smaller chunck. what should be the best way to do that ?

While googling about this i found references to clvm but no documentation i could use on how to set it up. Is this the way to go ?


regards,
Jean.
