Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2010-06-21 19:22:53 UTC
Using '--alloc anywhere' can cause mirror legs to be on same device.

[root@bp-01 LVM2]# lvcreate -m1 -L 500M -n lv vg --alloc anywhere /dev/sd[bc]1
  Logical volume "lv" created

[root@bp-01 LVM2]# devices
  LV            Copy%  Devices
  lv             36.00 lv_mimage_0(0),lv_mimage_1(0)
  [lv_mimage_0]        /dev/sdb1(0)
  [lv_mimage_1]        /dev/sdb1(125)
  [lv_mlog]            /dev/sdc1(0)
