Questions on lvmadm -t

The lvmadm -t shows the output below. Does this mean this three VG versions are available on the host? How do I specify if I want to use one or the other? Is there an swlist command to show what VG Version is installed?

Hi:

This document should help you. What you see are the limits for each version.

Re: Questions on lvmadm -t

Does this mean this three VG versions are available on the host?

Yes, because you have a newer release of 11.31.

How do I specify if I want to use one or the other?

During vgcreate.

Example:

# vgcreate -V 2.0 -s 32 -S 1p /dev/vg01 /dev/disk/disk50


To create a Version 2.0 volume group using 32 MB extents and a maximum size of 1 PB.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Yes it does...

See the "-V" option on vgcreate

> Is there an swlist command to show what VG Version is installed?

No - you already hit the command that tells you - "lvmadm -t"

Re: Questions on lvmadm -t

As of today, the 11iv3 man page documents (PDF files) on docs.hp.com do NOT reflect the '-V' or the '-S' option to vgcreate.

If anyone in HP sees this, can you get those documents updated, please?
