LVM accross multiple physical Disks

Postby alikzn101 » 2020-10-18 20:45

HI Guys

How does one handle physical disk failure in a VG which spans across multiple disks, does one need to have RAID on the disks first, or is there a way to recover from physical disk failure when using LVM ?

Any LV which stores data without redundancy on a drive will become unavailable if the drive fails.
LVM supports native redundancy with various RAID levels. Or you can use LVM on top of hardware or software RAID. But you already know this.
How many threads are you going to open on this topic ?
