Chapter 7. LVM Administration with the LVM GUI

In addition to the Command Line Interface (CLI), LVM provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) which you can use to configure LVM logical volumes. You can bring up this utility by typing system-config-lvm. The LVM chapter of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Deployment Guide provides step-by-step instructions for configuring an LVM logical volume using this utility.

In addition, the LVM GUI is availalbe as part of the Conga management interface. For information on using the LVM GUI with Conga, see the online help for Conga.
