3.2. Logical Volume Creation Overview
The following is a summary of the steps to perform to create an LVM logical volume.
After creating the logical volume you can create and mount the file system. The examples in this document use GFS2 file systems.
Alternately, you can create and mount the GFS2 file system with the LVM GUI.
Creating the LVM volume is machine independent, since the storage area for LVM setup information is on the physical volumes and not the machine where the volume was created. Servers that use the storage have local copies, but can recreate that from what is on the physical volumes. You can attach physical volumes to a different server if the LVM versions are compatible.
