Do you really want to remove active logical volume "dbbackup"? [y/n]:


Stapes to Install and configure LVM.
fdisk -l
fdisk /dev/hdb
:p to print partition
:n to Extend partition

Last cylender _______ enter

:n to new partition

Last cylender : +10G

Again create +10G partition
choose: e
Last cylender :+10G

Command:l for list.

Command: t
partition number : 5
hexadecimal number: 8e

again create:
command: t
partition number: 6
hexadecimal number: 8e
command: w to save.
# partprobe

take hdb drive and make two partition if you want 1 is ok.

pvcreate /dev/hdb1 /dev/hdb2
vgcreate test1 /dev/hdb1

mkdir /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0 or
mkdir /snap0

lvcreate -L1000M -s -n /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0 /dev/test1/data

mount /dev/test1/data /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0
mount /dev/test1/snap0 /snap0 dependupmon path you can mount any where in disk just

mysql -uroot -p passwd > FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK

create TAR
tar -cvf /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0/mysql`date +%Y%m%d%H`.tar /var/lib/mysql/

login to you mysql

cd /snap0
ls mysql2009080419.tar

tar -xvf mysql2009080419.tar

this is your hot backup.

Now you can umount LVM
root@localhost ~]# umount /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0

Check with command: lvdisplay

[root@localhost ~]# lvremove /dev/test1/snap0
Do you really want to remove active logical volume "snap0"? [y/n]: y

Whenerver you want just crete LVM useing this command:

lvcreate -L1000M -s -n /mnt/Backup_disk/snap0 /dev/test1/data

and mount same process.
