Hi all,

I read some where that due to UUID conflicts, EXT4 + LVM snapshots is still the way to go in Cent 6.

I do love XFS but was wondering your thoughts and experiences.

  • Just seen this post.
    I use lvm snapshots with xfs and to mount the snapshot you need to add this to your mount options:

    mount_options=’-t xfs -onouuid’

    Then you can mount the snapshot LV somewhere else on your server.
