Just wanted to ask here for confirmation of something.
Rsnapshot is a perl utility, and can be configured to create LVM
snapshots for performing backups (ie, for backing up email stores, etc).
man rsnapshot contains the following:
Path to the LVM Volume Groups.
Considering that my LVM volumes specified in fstab are:
# LVM command paths
So, my question is, what should I use in my rsnapshot config?
There is obviously a ton of stuff in /dev that has nothing to do with
LVM, so it seems more logical to me that I would use /dev/vg, but maybe
LVM is smarter than I give it credit for?
