I would like to clone a smaller LVM-formatted disk onto a larger one using dd, and boot that disk in the same machine. Do I need to make any special considerations for LVM?
Thanks! Although I considered the cool on-the-fly migration, where a second drive is added to an LVM volume and then LVM is told to remove the original drive from the volume, I decided my system would be much more likely to boot (and fully backed up, on the original disk) if I simply cloned the disk with dd, moved the new drive over to the first channel, removed the old drive, booted, added another partition in the new free space, added that partition to the original, smaller LVM volume, and used resize2fs to make the new space available to the filesystem. This worked great.
