How to change or create Lvm partition in Centos dedicate server after install OS in shell?

share|improve this question
Um, use the LVM tools? rpm -ql lvm (or rpm -ql lvm-tools or rpm -ql lvm2 or whatever the package is called) will show you a list of relevant tools, as will apropos lvm. Your question would be more useful if you told us what you want to do. – Gilles Dec 23 '11 at 23:43
