I started using LVM on my server. Today I created the VG and assigned a drive to it. But after looking around I saw, that nearly every tutorial speaks about assigning partitions to the VG.
What I did:
vgcreate test /dev/sdd lvcreate -n mydrive -l 100%FREE test vgextend test /dev/sde lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/mapper/test/mydrive
This works fine for now. I can mount, passthrough, write and read my LV.
Are there differences between "using disks instead partitions" and/or are there problems to expect, if I do it this way?
