We challenge you to create a logical volume from scratch. This means you have to partition disks, create physical volumes, create volume groups, and create a logical volume.
- [Instructor] Now that we've talked about logical volumes,…let's see if you can do it.…So here's the challenge.…I want you to create a logical volume and call it lvx,…have it be 200 meg long.…We want that allocated from a volume group…you're going to create called vgx.…Vgx should be made up from three physical volumes…that are 50, 100, and 150 meg long.…You want to format lvx with XFS, and you want to mount it.…Then you can unmount it, and then resize it to 240 meg,…and remount it, and see that you really have grown it,…and it's bigger.…
