This document (7009599) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 4
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 1
Logical Volume Management (LVM)

Situation

The lvscan, lvs, and lvdisplay commands will list the existing logical volumes, but how can I display the physical devices associated with those logical volumes?

Resolution

Use the lvs -o +devices command. For example,

ls-lvm:~ # lvs -o +devices
  LV       VG   Attr   LSize   Origin Snap%  Move Log Copy%  Convert Devices      
  arch1    asm  -wi-ao 120.00m                                       /dev/sdb5(0) 
  arch2    asm  -wi-ao 120.00m                                       /dev/sdb5(30)
  critical ceo  -wi-ao 240.00m                                       /dev/sdc1(0) 
  data     lrg  -wi-ao 500.00m                                       /dev/sdb6(0) 
  data     lrg  -wi-ao 500.00m                                       /dev/sdb7(0) 
  root     sys  -wi-ao 548.00m                                       /dev/sda3(0) 
  usr      sys  -wi-ao   2.52g                                       /dev/sda3(137)
  var      sys  -wi-ao 448.00m                                       /dev/sda3(781)
