Chapter 8. LVM Configuration
lvmpackage to create your own LVM configuration post-installation, but these instructions focus on using Disk Druid during installation to complete this task.
- Creating physical volumes from the hard drives.
- Creating volume groups from the physical volumes.
- Creating logical volumes from the volume groups and assign the logical volumes mount points.
/dev/sdb) are used in the following examples. They detail how to create a simple configuration using a single LVM volume group with associated logical volumes during installation.
8.1. Automatic Partitioning
/boot/partition resides on its own non-LVM partition. In the following example, it is the first partition on the first drive (
/dev/sda1). Bootable partitions cannot reside on LVM logical volumes.
- A single LVM volume group (
VolGroup00) is created, which spans all selected drives and all remaining space available. In the following example, the remainder of the first drive (
/dev/sda2), and the entire second drive (
/dev/sdb1) are allocated to the volume group.
- Two LVM logical volumes (
LogVol01) are created from the newly created spanned volume group. In the following example, the recommended swap space is automatically calculated and assigned to
LogVol01, and the remainder is allocated to the root file system,
