Create file systems and mount logical volumes section

Under
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.)

Move physical extents

Ok, I'm confused. This section mentions 92468, 92467 and 92466 PEs. There may be more than one off-by-one error going on here.

Which of these is correct? Ataraxy (talk) 10:35, 28 October 2016 (UTC)Ataraxy

Volume operations

This section says we should discuss Thin Provisioning here....

Create physical volumes

It is written that - "If LVM has to be set on the entire disk, there is no need to create any partitions", and also "DEVICE can be a disk or a partition", but I think it is worth mentioning somewhere in this wiki that GRUB cannot be installed on a disk with LVM installed on it as a whole (see grub-install with LVM on entire disk). Any thoughts? Duduedri96 (talk) 22:57, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
