16.3 Question

In spanish course said:

"Las herramientas que agregan o quitan particiones físicas a un grupo de volúmenes comienzan con pv e incluyen: pvcreate, pvdisplay......."


"The tools for add and remove physical partitions to volume groups starts with pv............"

Can the pv tools deal with volume groups directly or pv tools add physical partitions to LVMfs as logical volumes and then vg tools add the logical volumes to volume groups?


  • Hi,

    You run pvcreate to initialize a partition as physical volume. Then you use vgcreate to create a volume group. Then you use lvcreate to create a logical volume; in this last step you can assign the logical volume to a volume group.

    You also can ask in spanish, both languages are supported here :)
