LVM and Multi Path

juparkerjuparker Employee, Registered User


My customer is using multi path and when running the "" during install and the install failed. Is LVM / EXT 4 supported for multipath for Vertica 8.1?

Output from

check disk partitioning: LVM not supported.
FAIL: LVM partitioning not supported.
