hi and best wishes for the new year! Let me describe my scenario: I have a big volume group (let's say: /dev/vgbig/lv[1-9]) with a lot of snapshots in it and not used very often. Another volume group (/dev/vgsmall/lv[1-9]) contains data for normal use. Because of initializing /dev/vgbig/ at boot time the machine becomes usable after about 12h (twelve!) It would be ok if the machine would boot with /dev/vgsmall initialized, would do it's normal duty and in an late initscript would initialize /dev/vgbig/ (vgchange -ay /dev/vgbig/ ) It would be ok to wait now, because i could do my normal work. I thougt about a rule in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf, but i am not sure how to write it.
Then kernel command line arg
rd.lvm.vg=<volume group name> would do. Heinz
Does anyone? Thanks in advance, tom
