Platespin: LVM support
Posted by martijnl on September 11, 2006
The issue I wrote about in my last Platespin post has been resolved. Unfortunately it has been confirmed that Platespin does not support LVM volumes.
Migration of these servers (= approx. 40 Linux servers) will therefore consist of deploying a new VM based on our standard SLES template and then copying everything over. Fortunately for us most of the data on our Linux servers already resides on the SAN so the time lost by not being able to automate the migration with Platespin is not that much but it will mean extra effort per server.
We’ll have to do some tests on the impact of this on our planning.
