A.0 Installing with EVMS as the Volume Manager of the System Device

This section describes how to modify the default partitioning scheme for the system device during installation of Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES) and Novell Storage Services (NSS) so that the system device is managed by the Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) instead of the Linux Volume Manager 2 (LVM2).

IMPORTANT:For the purpose of this documentation, a system device is any device that contains the Linux /boot, swap, or root (/) partitions for your OES 2 server.
