LVM Configuration in Ubuntu 8.10

Create a Volume Group (VG)

With the changes we have made so far written to disk, the next step is to create a Volume Group (VG). Select the option to create a VG as shown in the screenshot below. Enter

Creating a VG starts with giving it a name. Any name will do. Enter.

With the VG named, the next step is to assign the PV we created earlier to the VG. By default, this is not selected. Use the space bar on the keyboard to select the partition representing the PV. Enter.

That’s it for creating a VG. Next step is to create the logical volumes.

  3. This guide is INCREDIBLY helpful!
    Thank you SO very much for such a detailed set of step-by-step instructions. The screen shots along with the text instructions gave me the “visual” confirmation that I needed along the way, without making any mistakes.
    I had NO clue how to do my partitioning, LVs, etc., but your guide definitely helped me to get this completed.
    Thank you!

  4. Thank you for the definitive guide to setting up LVM. A well-reviewed book published in 2008 was completely inadequate in its LVM setup guide.
    Only when I came across this post was I able to correctly set up the HDD. Next time I experiment I may set up ‘swap’ as non-LVM to see if there is any advantage to that. Thanks again, great work!
