Create an LVM volume group

Home > Search

The vgcreate command can be used to create an LVM volume group. In this example, physical volumes /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1 are added to a volume group named myVG. This assumes that both /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1 have been set up as LVM physical volumes.

~]# vgcreate myVG /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1


The vgdisplay command can be used to verify the LVM volume group was created.

~]# vgdisplay
---Volume group---
VG Name         myVG
. . .


Next, create a logical volume.
