I’ve searched a lot of threads about LVM and snapshots in particular without luck.
My initial plan with LVM was to have a flexible partitioning setup, enabling easy resizing of partitions, and I left no free space outside the LVM partitions.
Can I still use snapshot for backups? I understand snapshots are placed in the same volume group as the volume to be “snapshot’ed”. However, is the snapshot also placed inside existing LVM logical volumes? or should there be unused logical volumes?
Please hint me on how to correct setup - if required?
