What is the basic order of LVM commands?

The basic order of LVM (Logical Volume Manager) commands typically involves the following steps:

  1. Create a Physical Volume (PV) on one or more storage devices using the pvcreate command.

  2. Create a Volume Group (VG) that contains one or more Physical Volumes using the vgcreate command.

  3. Create one or more Logical Volumes (LV) within the Volume Group using the lvcreate command.

  4. Format the Logical Volumes with a filesystem using a command such as mkfs.

  5. Mount the Logical Volumes to a directory using the mount command.

  6. Optionally, update the /etc/fstab file to automatically mount the Logical Volumes at boot time.

  7. Manage the Logical Volumes using commands such as lvextend, lvreduce, lvremove, and lvdisplay.

  8. Manage the Volume Group using commands such as vgextend, vgreduce, vgremove, and vgdisplay.

  9. Manage the Physical Volumes using commands such as pvmove, pvresize, and pvdisplay.

It is important to note that the exact order of LVM commands may vary depending on the specific task being performed.
