I have a headless Ubuntu (18.04) server with 3 hard drives each partitioned to a single lvm volume group for a combined size of 6Tb. I recently purchased a new hard drive that is 8Tb and I want to get everything copied onto the new hard drive. I've partitioned the new 8Tb drive and set up an ext4 file system on it (I don't want to use logical volumes if I don't have to).
I've found many posts about copying from one logical volume to another, but I can't find anything about going from a logical volume to a purely physical volume so I'm wondering if this is something that anyone has done before or would know how to do?
Would it be possible to use something like
dd if=/dev/lvm/root of=/dev/sdd1 or will that not work? Will I perhaps have to go through and manually copy the parts of the LVM filesystem onto my newly partitioned HDD?
