Re: creating raw device files

I'm really not sure if I understand your question, but if you create a LVOL in your VG vgora (let's say it is called "raw2") you will get a "raw" device called "rraw2".

man lvcreate

Hope this helps!

Re: creating raw device files

and I would label that as a raw logical volume vs a raw device with no LVM contructs like /dev/[r]dsk/cxdxtx
