Need to create 1 volume group with 100GB logical volume size

Hi Good Day!

What will be the appropriate parameter for making volume group that will accommodate 1 logical volume with 100GB of size?

Do vgcreate -s 32 (VGname) (Disk/LUN name) will be okay?

And lastly do I need to specifiy the exact size when using the lvcreate command?

its just 3 parameters you have to consider for a large VG/LV

-p >>> maximum number of physical volumes
-s >>> Sets the number of megabytes in each physical extent
-e >>> max_pe Set the maximum number of physical extents that can be allocated from any of the physical volumes in the volume group
