Archive for the ‘Create LVM Disk’ Category

Scenario :

I want to create 10GB LVM partition….using fdisk -l get disk name “/dev/sdd”….. below script we have to pass 4 arguments like LUN name, Volume Group name,Logical Volume name and Mount Points…. first scan the disk and create LVM partition…

script :

[root@autel ~]# cat

echo -e ” \nScan and Detect newly connected SCSI LUN”
host=`ls -l /sys/class/scsi_host/ | grep -v total | awk ‘{print $9}’ | awk -F”host” ‘{print $2}’`
for i in $host
echo “Rescaning scsi host /sys/class/scsi_host/host$i”
echo “- – -” > /sys/class/scsi_host/host$i/scan
echo -e “\n All the SCSI LUN scanned Sucessfully…..”
mkdir -p $mp
echo -e “\n\n Partition creation is begin”
partx -av $lun
pvcreate $lun
echo -e “\nPhysical Volume $lun Created”
vgcreate $vg $lun
echo -e “\n Volume Group $vgCreated”
lvcreate -l 100%FREE -n $lv $vg
echo -e “\n Logical Volume $lv Created”
mkfs.ext4 /dev/$vg/$lv
echo “/dev/$vg/$lv      $mp     ext4    defaults        1 2 ” | cat >> /etc/fstab
mount -a
s=` df -h | grep /test | awk ‘{print $1}’`
echo -e “\nNewly created LUN $mp = $s ”
echo -e “Partition successfully created”

output :

[root@autel ~]# time ./ /dev/sdd new disk10 /autel
