🗒 Tutorial


LVM RAID is a way to create a Logical Volume (LV) that uses multiple physical devices to improve performance or tolerate device failures. In LVM, the physical devices are Physical Volumes (PVs) in a single Volume Group (VG).

This tutorial will work with the Oracle Linux Volume Manager utilities to create a RAID logical volume and then address a disk failure.


In this tutorial, you will learn how to:

  • Create a RAID logical volume
  • Resize a RAID logical volume
  • Recover a failed RAID device


The tutorial uses the following system:

  • Any Oracle Linux 8 system with the following configurations:
    • a non-root user with sudo permissions
    • additional block volumes for use with LVM
