one of reasons i disliked and stopped using lvm in early days. no way to
simply change a physical to logical. may be now, do not know.

what a friend told me he had to do one time when needed to convert was
build a system with lvm, place drive with physical and logical in it.

next copied files in physical off drive to new system. reformatted physical
to a logical and copied files back.

when he replaced drive back into original box, all went well.

i do believe he had to make changes to fstab, and something else, but i
do not recall.



peace out.
