188.8.131.52. Building a storage pool
pool-build pool-or-uuid command builds a pool with a specified pool name or UUID. The options
--no-overwrite can only be used for a pool whose type is file system. If neither option is specified, and the pool is a file system type pool, then the resulting build will only make the directory.
--no-overwrite is specified, it probes to determine if a file system already exists on the target device, returning an error if it exists, or using
mkfs to format the target device if it does not. If
--overwrite is specified, then the
mkfs command is executed and any existing data on the target device is overwritten.
