I would like to learn specifically what this is before we post this list
anywhere. I don't know of any "integration" with ADSM and Linux LVM. I
don't think the current LVM supports mirrored LVs, so there is no possibility
of a snapshot of a filesystem...

I don't think this is currently possible either with Linux LVM... Let's
stick with what works before we go talking about features that don't
You can add me as a strong supporter of LVM for Linux. I think any OS
that doesn't have LVM these days is a pain in the a**.
