[CentOS] LVM & Stripe

Hello list,

I have a question about LVM.

My server has five disks and I will use it to create a LVM environment.

I saw in the lvcreate man page that I can use the “-i” option to set
the number of disks that I want to stripe the lvols, but this option
doesn’t exists in the “lvchange” option (in case I add new disks to
the VG).

I had in mind: create 10 lvols – “lvcreate -i5 -L 10G MyVG
/dev/MyVG/lvol[1-10]” and in the future, add more disks and increate
the stripe value of the existing lvols.

Does anybody knows how to change the parameter “-i" of a lvol that
already exists?

Best Regards
