Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
.VDO manager has been deprecated The python-based VDO management software has been deprecated and will be removed from RHEL 9. In RHEL 9, it will be replaced by the LVM-VDO integration. Therefore, it is recommended to create VDO volumes using the `lvcreate` command. The existing volumes created using the VDO management software can be converted using the `/usr/sbin/lvm_import_vdo` script, provided by the `lvm2` package. For more information on the LVM-VDO implementation, see link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/deduplicating_and_compressing_logical_volumes_on_rhel/index#introduction-to-vdo-on-lvm_deduplicating-and-compressing-logical-volumes-on-rhel[Deduplicating and compressing logical volumes on RHEL].
