Re: LVM Mirroring - Redhat

You can use the lvs command to verify the layout of the mirrored volume and the underlying devices for the mirror leg and the mirror log.

lvs -a -o +devices

Re: LVM Mirroring - Redhat

First of all, as you can see, you dont have the "m" attribute. Is not mirrored.

Shalom,

Don't discount the fact that hardware mirroring would not be visible to your REHL system.

lvdisplay -v should show software mirror state if LVM was used to do the mirror.
