Create Logical Volumes
With the PV and VG created, and the PV assigned to the VG. the next step is to create the Logical Volumes. A Logical Volume (LV) is LVM jargon for partition. Our goal in this tutorial is to create six LVs, one each for the following filesystem directories:
- / (root)
Observe that the upper part of the screenshot below reveals that we have created one PV which has been assigned to a VG, but there are zero LVs. Select the option to create logical volumes as shown. Enter.
Repeat the last two screenshot for the following logical volumes. Suggested sizes in parenthesis:
- root (2000 MB)
- usr (3000 MB)
- var (1000 MB)
- tmp (500 MB)
- home (3000 MB)
Now that we have created a PV, a VG, assigned the PV to the VG, and created six LVs, the final task is to assign a filesystem and a mount point to each LV.
