View Full Version : [mythbuntu] How to remove drive from LVM without losing data?

August 2nd, 2009, 05:47 PM
Hey gurus!

I have a PATA 200GB and a SATA 1TB spanning an LVM. Seems that the PATA drive is going bad. Is there a way to force all data onto the SATA drive so I can remove the bad drive from the system?

I will also need some pointers to how to change the LVM setup to remove the PATA drive once the data has been "moved" if possible.


Edit: I forgot to mention it is an xfs filesys. I am getting the impression that you can't shrink and xfs sys anyway so I may be outta luck.
