Mounting LV from USB Drives

Basically the crux of it is as follows. Remember it’s gotta be activated before mounting!

find it!

#fdisk -l /dev/sdb
Scan the drive with pvscan


Scan the drive with lvscan


activate it

#lvchange -a y /dev/volume

mount it

# mount -t ext3 /dev/volume/LogVol00 /mnt/somewhere

deativate when finished

#lvchange -a n /dev/volume

Mental note – don’t use LV, they suck and its more hard work…
