Being on the careful side here (don't want to restore 300GB of data).
pvdisplay reports (after pvcreate):
--- NEW Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/md0
PV Size 447.15 GB
PE Size (KByte) 0
Total PE 0
Free PE 0
Allocated PE 0
PV UUID wZQg66-cWrF-VDi5-GcRN-aYVg-RQQ3-PPm5K5
So how do I get the PEs? Can I also create a new Volumegroup without damaging
anything? Or is there another way to get the total/free PEs?
Thanks for the insight,
