Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965752
Previous installed system disappears when using free space from existing VG for new / partition
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:18:11 EST
Description of problem:
If I have some free space on VG, and use it for new installation, all other partitions from previous system disappears from menu (see steps to reproduce)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On system with 2 8GB disks, create / partition, 3GB, LVM
2. Edit volume group, name System and size All available size, place it only on first disk
3. Create 500MB swap partition on second disk
4. Create /srv partition, 3GB, LVM, volume group Data, place it only on second disk, and set size to all available
1. Start new installation
2. On partitioning, go to custom partitioning.
3. Create new / partition
Anaconda informs user that it created the partition on System volume group, this is great. But the previous installation just disappeared from the menu (which means now I can't use /home for new installation)
Existing installation should not disappear, and user should be able to use partitions from previous installation at any time.
