i need some help with setting up my host machine for running virtual servers on ubuntu server.
I have a server with 4x2TB SAS which are in raid6 using raid adapter (dell perc h730p). The idea is to setup LVM and then use KVM/QEMU, virtlib and virt-manager for setting up and operating the virtual servers.
The problem i have now is, i cant figure out a good way to set up my LVM for this setup.
What i thought of doing was, make the whole disk use LVM during host machine ubuntu installation and then make a 50gb LV partition for it. Then split the rest of the disk into 2 parts, 20GB for seperate /home LV to use across all the virtual servers and rest of the space would to to var/lib which will house all the virtual server images.
Does the above make any sense?
Also, do i need to make a new LV inside var/lib for each virtual server for snapshots, or how should that be set up?
