Mount Logical Volume

This tutorial will show you how you can mount logical volume on a server with Fedora operating systems.

If it is already mounted you will see it as VolGroup00-LogVol00 like, or similar in the listing bellow.

Often when a server needs maintenance the logical volumes are not automatically recognized by the kernel.

First you will need to load the device module:

#modprobe dm-mod

then activate the existing logical volumes with this command:

#vgchange -ay

What left to be done is to create a folder, where the logical volume will be mounted, and the ”mount” command to executed .

#mkdir /mnt/LV
#mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/LV

Then you will be able to see the mounted volume under ”/mnt/LV”
