Re: [linux-lvm] Moving Xen LV to image and mounting the image.

Looks like you are doing it correctly, but you would have to mount the copied image via loopback, because it is a file now and not a device.

Hello All!

I have been trying to solve a problem. In my current scenario I created on our SAN multiple volume groups with a single logical volume on each taking the entire groups space. I realized that I made a mistake and did not leave room for doing snapshots. Now I am moving each of the LV's to a new single large logical group and leaving space for snap shots. So then I realized that I could do a "dd" to an image file (example: "dd if=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 of=/ root/wdcdns1.img"). I was wondering if there was a way to mount this image file? I can't seem to mount it no matter what I do. Am I doing this correctly?

Thanks for any help!
