4.4.6. Persistent Device Numbers

Major and minor device numbers are allocated dynamically at module load. Some applications work best if the block device always is activated with the same device (major and minor) number. You can specify these with the lvcreate and the lvchange commands by using the following arguments:
--persistent y --major major --minor minor
Use a large minor number to be sure that it hasn't already been allocated to another device dynamically.
If you are exporting a file system using NFS, specifying the fsid parameter in the exports file may avoid the need to set a persistent device number within LVM.
