http://www.linuxquestions.org – Attempting to create a seperate volume for my /var folder and was wondering if this would be the correct way to do it. Any input would be great. New to LVM and coming back to linux after a very long break. The issue I'm having is I need to reduce my current root volume in order to do this. Please don't be gentle with me I don't break :) boot to RHEL5 rescue disc and go into single user mode init 1 unmount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 resize2fs -p /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 -50G lvreduce -L -50G VolGroup00/LogVol00 lvcreate -L 49G -n var_v /dev/VolGroup00 mkfs -t ext3 /dev/VolGroup00/var_v mkdi (HowTos)
