Anaconda should be able to re-use existing pools to use LVM Thin Provisioning
Last modified: 2014-03-17 15:34:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The pools are not configurable.
When there is an existing pool on the disk, anaconda should be able to use that to create thin-LVs.
Seems I can reuse already existing thin-LVs on that pool by reformatting them.
Otherwise there may not be enough space to complete installation though there is enough space in the pool.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try installing onto system with existing thin-pool over all disks which has enough free space to allocate root FS.
Not enough space to install system.
Anaconda should be able to reuse the pool, otherwise one would have to use separate pool for each installation which is completely missing the point of using thin-provisioning.
There is no workaround in UI (pools are not shrinkable) making pools unusable for "regular user" without knowledge of command line.
