Re: LVM partitions on ax external USB HD

From an earlier posting someone suggested to run the following commands to activate and later deactivate LVM volumes in rescue mode. I used these commands on an external USB drive to get at data from a previous installation and it worked. You might be able to get at your data in this way.

Excerpt from earlier help.
Once booted into text-mode rescue, invoke the following commands:

lvm lvscan
lvm vgchange -ay

This will scan for all LVM volumes and then will make them active and accessible.

lvm vgchange -an

will deactivate them all.

Tnx Jim

But if I am a standard user with my machine running (with LVM on it), and I connect an external LVM hard disk,how do I activate that volumes??? not in rescue mode I mean.
I suppose that if I play with lvm vgchange -an I will break everything also on the running system. Is it true??
