I'm relatively new to LVM on Linux, but have a lot of experience with
Everything makes sense, except I have not found any information on how
to do the following:
1. Add a PV to a volume group. (this is easy)
2. Reorganize the volume group to spread the
Physical Extents evenly across all PVs in
the volume group.
I've looked at setting up a striped configuration to spread the PE's
between the PVs. And that's all well and good. But what happens when I
add another PV to the VG? Looks like I'll end up with a mess.
On AIX I would...
... and now my new PV is nicely added to the VG with the Physical
partitions nicely spread evenly between all the PVs.
How can I do this on Linux?
