LVM problem

Post by InfernalRed » 2018/03/26 19:12:53

Hi all. I have 2 VM. On the first VM i attach second physical disk, mount him, and copy files to him. Then i shutdown first VM, and attach this is disk to second VM. Mount LVM like on first VM, but i don't see my files. What i am doing wrong? :(

What exactly did you do on the first VM? Give the exact commands you issued and in what order. You can probably retrieve those by looking at the output from the history command or by browsing through the contents of /root/.bash_history.

Is the LVM activated on the second VM (lvchange -y)?

Your history says you mounted it on /mnt/dir_backup but when you ran the tar command you were not in that directory so your files won't have been put there. You did cd /mnt/ first though your history also shows you rebooted shortly afterwards and didn't remount the LV nor did you cd to it again and only then did you untar your file.

Maybe if LVM was be created another VM1, VM2 hasn't rights to this LVM? But she have saw this LVM disk.
