Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "system" using metadata type lvm1
home:/# pvcreate /dev/hdd2
Failed to read existing physical volume '/dev/hdd2'
Physical volume "/dev/hdd2" successfully created
It still says "failed to read" etc. but then says successfully created.
home:/# vgextend system /dev/hdd2
Volume group "system" successfully extended
Ok, looks like it is working ok. Now another problem...
Command not implemented yet.
Ugh...looks like LVM1 had it but LVM2 does not yet. Has this changed since
LVM version: 1.95.10 (2002-05-31)
Even if pvmove is still nonexistant I guess I can put the new disk in another
VG, create LV's over there, and manually copy the data over.
Thanks for the help!
