    Adding new disk to LVM + crypt
    Hi. I have currently disk setup like this: sda1:boot sda2:lvm-swap sda2:lvm-root sda2 was encrypted prior to lvm. I need to increase lvm-root size with new disk, but I'm unsure how to do that properly. Suppose my new disk is sdb, I guess it's just something like fdisk sdb, add new partition of type 8e mkfs.ext3 sdb1 pvcreate sdb1 vgextend lvmgroup sdb1 lvextend -L 100%FREE lvm-root Is this correct? And what about encryption, do I just encrypt sdb1 before doing the above, like I did with sda? I'm just looking forward to do this without any dataloss from lvm-root.

    Hi.

    I have currently disk setup like this:

    sda1:boot
    sda2:lvm-swap
    sda2:lvm-root

    sda2 was encrypted prior to lvm.
    I need to increase lvm-root size with new disk, but I'm unsure how to do that properly. Suppose my new disk is sdb, I guess it's just something like

    fdisk sdb, add new partition of type 8e
    mkfs.ext3 sdb1
    pvcreate sdb1
    vgextend lvmgroup sdb1
    lvextend -L 100%FREE lvm-root

    Is this correct? And what about encryption, do I just encrypt sdb1 before doing the above, like I did with sda?
    I'm just looking forward to do this without any dataloss from lvm-root.
