Hello again,

Please excuse my ignorance, I am just busy with a deployment and want
to set this up so that I do not have to mess around with it again once
it is live.

I've successfully used OpenNebula using NFS with the main storage
attached to the controller and the nodes just sharing storage space
from there.

With the LVM setup does this mean that I need LVM (VG's) on all nodes
as well ???

Can someone please provide me with a little more of an explanation on
their 'working' LVM setup.

Thanks and Regards,
