Sorry for my ignorance.
When I create xen virtual machines on lvm I need to create a
filesystem on lvm container?
assuming you're using LVs as your root and swap devices, yes
I'm italian and my english is very bad.
If I've understood well xen-tools create the LV, then the filesystem
on it and then put the VM image.
So if I set, for example, 50G for my VM disk space and later I need
more space I simply do lvextend on the LV and then resize2fs, then
change the parameter on the VM config file, for example 100G, and
simply restart the VM.
That's basically it. I don't think you have to change anything in the config file if you resize the LV later, but I've never actually played with resizing volumes.


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In<fnord>  practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
