Centos LVM Partitions
We've recently received a complaint regarding a client's drive on their dedicated server.
This is a Dell 1750, with 1x36GB SCSI drive.
He is claiming it is a NFS (Network File System), as the drive name is /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
However I am guessing this could be due to the LVM Partitions setup upon the install of Centos.
Can anyone prove me wrong or correct myself in what I'm saying?
Well, it certainly sounds like you and your client belong together
It is an LVM Logical Volume.
"lvdisplay" to see logical volumes.
"vgdisplay" to see volume groups.
"pvdisplay" to see physical volumes.
"fdisk -l" to see list of disks.
Yup this is without a doubt an LVM partition. CentOS by default uses LVM.
NFS and LVM's are completely different. I'm confused on this thread? How can you client think a NFS and a LVM are the same?

He is saying its a NFS, however we've been trying to put forward to him this is a LVM.
I just wanted to get confirmation
This is not an NFS it is clearly a LVM partition.
