LVM Disk Recipes for Debian

After much wrangling and researching I finally figured out how to get LVM disk recipes to work with Debian preseeding. The following recipe will create a partition layout of what's in the table. When making these recipes make sure that you account for extra whitespace that may be hiding (especially spaces) otherwise it may yield unexpected results.


Mount PointTypeVGLV NameSize (MB)Filesystem
/bootPrimary100ext3
/LVMvg00/dev/vg00/rootvol4096ext3
/varLVMvg00/dev/vg00/varvol1024ext3
swapLVMvg00/dev/vg00/swapvol2048swap
/homeLVMvg00/dev/vg00/homevolremaining spaceext3


Recipe file:
