Lets say I would like to make a large volume from external usb drives. I create the lvm volume on drives that have been given certain device names sdf sdg or whatever and at some point they are plugged in differently or in different ports will the volune still be mountable? will I have to change things to mount the volume ?
Perhaps it's possible to work around this using UUIDs at the physical volume level?
For bonus points is it possible to convert or migrate from device names to uuids ? I'm thinking perhaps through a sequence of pvmoves
