Does VCS support LVM?
I have a question. Does VCS support LVM for Apache servicegroup? I have configured an Apache servicegroup where i have kept the httpd.conf file at local storage of all nodes. I want to move to shared storage now. I am wondering , can i create logical volume (lvcreate ....) , create filesystem (ext2 ) , mount it and copy the httpd.conf there?? will that be recommended solution?? or only vxVM is the recommended solution?
Thanks a lot in advance.
You can use LVM with VCS,
You can use LVM with VCS, however there is little or no support for 3rd party multipathing depending on what O/S platform (Linux, AIX or HP-ux) and SF version. It looks like you are using Linux LVM from the commands you mention, so if you are using 5.1, the bundled agents guide says:
For 6.0, you can use Veritas DMP with LVM, but it is not so clear if you can use 3rd party multipathing - see the discussion I started here http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/using-third-party-multipathing-vcs-lvm-agents for which I got a response which seem to say 3rd party multipathing is not supported, but it was not that clear as the statement in response was "Multipathing is not supported with the LVM agent", but LVM IS supported with Veritas DMP for Linux and EMC PowerPath and HITACHI HDLM for AIX LVM, but I never got any furher clarification, but perhaps it is just me and maybe it will be clearer to you if 6.0 supports 3rd party multipathing for Linux LVM.
