Logical Volume Manager Requirements

To increase availability, boot disks must be managed by LVMs such as Solstice DiskSuite™ and VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) software. You should always reserve a few megabytes of disk space and two slices for use by an LVM. For most servers using Solstice DiskSuite or VxVM software, reserving disk space of one cylinder (where a disk cylinder is at least 2 MB) should suffice.

The remainder of this book provides specific LVM planning and configuration information.
