8.0 Clustering LVM Volume Groups with Novell Cluster Services

After you have installed and configured Novell Cluster Services, you can create shared cluster resources for Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) volume groups. You create an LVM logical volume on the volume group, and add a Linux POSIX file system such as Btrfs, Ext2, Ext3, ReiserFS, or XFS.

You can enable NCP for the volume to enable the Linux volume to be accessed with the NetWare Core Protocol. An NCP volume of the same name is automatically created, and the NCP share is created at the root of the volume. It also creates the NCP Virtual Server object for cluster resource in NetIQ eDirectory.

This section describes how to configure the LVM volume group cluster resource, logical volume, and file system with NSSMU.
