3.1. Creating LVM Volumes in a Cluster

Creating LVM logical volumes in a cluster environment is identical to creating LVM logical volumes on a single node. There is no difference in the LVM commands themselves, or in the LVM GUI interface. In order to enable the LVM volumes you are creating in a cluster, the cluster infrastructure must be running and the cluster must be quorate.

For information on how to set up the cluster infrastructure, see Configuring and Managing a Red Hat Cluster.
