Hi. Here is the situation. I can not boot from usb(motherboard does not support it) and my dvd is not working (probably dead). I am using lvm and since i run out of space i allocated some free space and created a logical partition and then a physical volume on that partition. I extended the existing volume group to contain the new physical volume. I extended the logical volumes too.
One of the four partitions on the disk can be the Extended Partition. It can be subdivided into logical volumes.
Each logical volume is assigned a disk letter and can be formatted with a separate file system.
Can someone help me to come out of this error?
We have a HP-UX 11.11 system. I started a scbackup (online) as mirroring was enabled and the backup went on successfully. But from the scbackup logs I see that after the splitting of the logical volumes for online backup usually a MERGE-DELETE process gets activated on splitted Logical Volumes which doesn't seem to have started.
ive setup a partition over my 80gb drive which includes a lvm volume group called vgpool but i forgot to create a boot partition outside of the lvm.
theres still space on the drive, but how do i get the volume group smaller?
inside the lvm are various logical volumes called: usr/var/home/tmp and so on.
i know that the space allocated for the volume group is bigger than all logical volumes
I am setting up a notebook for software demo purpose. The machine has a Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit desktop. As it is, the SSD is configured to have a single volume group, with /boot, /swap, and / all in their respective logical volumes. They collectively consume 30GB space.
