I have a xenserver that has a local ISO repository created following Inside the LVM found at this link:


This works fine, how do I make it survive a reboot? I'm not familiar with LVM (yet).

I'm familar with normal mounts but each time I restart it appears I have to run

vgchange -a y

as this path /dev/VG_XenStorage-10307bc6-dc3b-6b46-b01a-b9efa6f39ae6/ISO

Doesn't exist after rebooting until after the vgchange command is run.

Unfortunately, I can't test it right now as one of the VM's will be in use for a while and I just want to be sure that if it gets restarted the ISO library will remain. i.e. I don't want to leave it to chance.

Will adding this to /etc/fstab be all I need to do?

/mnt/iso_import /dev/mapper/VG_XenStorage--4031a899--4ed1--f383--4f2d--d7638260ce0e-ISO ext3 defaults 1 1

If you are using suse you should look in /etc/sysconfig/lvm and on redhat && suse and other linux version volume_list in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf.
