ianw1974 Posted October 27, 2009 Report Share Posted October 27, 2009 Generally when you partition in openfiler you set up a volume group and then you create logical volumes for the data that you will use. This is irrespective of whether you have multiple disks or not. I had 1 x 100GB disk that I was using for my demo. As you say, and know, LVM allows you to add another disk and expand the volume group and then extend your logical volumes accordingly. Much easier way of resizing partitions than having to move them all around when you want to make changes. An LVM snapshot, takes a backup at that point in time of that particular logical volume, so that you can revert to it as and when you need to.
