Hello LVM gurus,
I read the following;
"There is one important "limitation" when using whole disk. The LVM tools
used to setup
LVM will recognize a whole disk as possible device for LVM ONLY if it has
partition table! If the disk already has one, even an empty one, LVM will
refuse to use it."
Is it still TRUE?
I am going to make several MDs on several whole disks, and then combine them
volume. How could I avoid this problem?
