Re: [virt-tools-list] Installing a KVM guest with LVM partitioning on an LVM partitioned KVM host via virt-install fails: "volume group already exists"

Hi Dennis,

I ran a dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sysvg/logical-volume but that did not
help. I also tried to remove the volume group and to create it with
different sizes and names.

Installing the vms manually without removing the logical volumes
succeeds. The issue appears only when using virt-install.
