On my server box, running Proxmox which is Debian-server based, I had
two IDE drives, one master and the other slave for data. Then I just
installed a 500 GIG SATA drive, formatted with the very same proxmox
install. So the NEW master has sda2 (sda1=boot) as an LVM volume named
"pve". So does the old master IDE drive. Since the label is the same,
how do I mount the old IDE master drive LVM partition (/dev/sdb2) named
"pve" to the new SATA drive (/dev/sda2) to say the /opt directory,
command line style?? This is a headless server so I'm using ssh to
I've never had to dink with LVM before. Any help would be greatly
