re-installing amahi on the server

Postby pbecks1963 » Tue Jan 27, 2009 3:36 am

Hello,

I am planning to start all over and re-install amahi on my machine. Reason: i've got 3 ide-harddisk which are grouped in a lvm-cluster (mistake i made during the first install) in the end i want 4 mounted ide-harddisk in my amahi-server.

To install amahi i have to first add a dvd-drive in my machine (which means i start out with 3 ide-harddisks after the first install).

QUESTION --> I forsee trouble (re-installing amahi) because the harddisks are bound/formatted as a lvm volume. I don't know if the install-dvd from amahi can "seperate" them/format them individually ???? (so that i am left with a working amahi-server with 3 individual ide-harddisks)

After this i plan to remove the dvd-drive and add the fourth ide-harddisk (and run the diskmounter.sh)

Hopefully this will work??

I think the diskmounter script will not work on lvm (not sure, but it's not a very complicated script).
You can always install (physically) the 4th disk after your install (or with the current install) and extend your lvm.
What filesystem you use will have some impact on the tools you need for this.

I see a lot of questions about LVM in the forums, I'm going to experiment with this a little bit and post a tutorial about it if it works out the way I want.

druid: i think that becks is saying he is reinstalling to ditch the LVM.

becks: i dont have a lot of experience w/ LVM, but it shouldn't be a problem. it will ask during the fedora install how you want to partition your drives, and give you the opportunity to set them up however you like.

yeah, but why ditch LVM? it's much more flexible than the traditional way of partitioning.

Personally I use a mix of old & new:
/dev/sda
/boot on /dev/sda1
swap on /dev/sda2
/ on /dev/sda3
/home on /dev/sda4
/dev/sdb
/var/hda on /dev/vgdata/lvdata
