Create file systems and mount logical volumes section

Warning: When choosing mountpoints, just select your newly created logical volumes (use: /dev/mapper/Volgroup00-lvolhome). Do not select the actual partitions on which logical volumes were created (do not use: /dev/sda2).

is it okay to use /dev/VolGroup00/lvolhome to mount? E.g.

 # mount /dev/VolGroup00/lvolhome /mnt/home

If not should there be a warning against this too?

If you ls -l /dev/mapper and /dev/VolGroup00 you'll see that they only contain symlinks to the same devices in /dev, so yes, it should be the same. -- Kynikos (talk) 03:35, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

systemd services

lvm2 has lvm2-lvmetad.service, lvm2-monitor.service, and lvm2-pvscan@.service. Those should probably be listed with explanations of what they do, and what effects there are from having or not having them running. The wiki does mention lvmetad in the context of its conf file, but not as a systemd service to consider enabling. (Could also mention use_lvmetad = 0 in conf if you don't want it.)
