Hi all, a quick question. I have a DRBD resource that was once used as a drive for a Linux machine that used LVM. I want to create a new VM (KVM based) that uses this resource. I can start the installation OK - the installer 'sees' the 300GB drive (/dev/drbd/by-res/<resource>) but when I try using the partition manager in the Debian (guest) installer it complains that there is already LVM data on there and it won't allow me to use the drive without first cleaning up the LVM config on there. Is it possible to mount the resource in the host and use the command line LVM tools to 'clean' that up? I was thinking that maybe I could use *dd* to clone a new clean resource of the same size but that seems silly. Does anyone have any suggestions for 'formatting' this resource so that it looks again like a clean un-partitioned disk?
