Hiya folks, I done goofed agin, followed instructions from website that looked like it knew what it was saying but ended up with unusable volume. It is showing in node - disks - lvm as 'newdrive sdc1' I gave it the sdc1 which was correct as far as instructions (this drive listed as sdc in drive list for node) but 'newdrive' looks to have been in the instructions I lazily copypasta'd into terminal directly without considering fully the consequences (noob), anyone fancy giving an ole fella a hand crossing the road?? It looks like it just needs lv relabelling but I cannot find instructions on how to achieve this.
edit* forgot to mention, 4 x 146g sas disks in a hpe dl380g7 running in raid 5 through a P410i raid card
ta devs.

no sign of the elusive 'newdrive' volume here??
Ok, all day bangin my head against this and am here; lvm renamed and successfully added to pve - data but now my new 'empty' drive is showing @ 100%, any suggestions??

FYI, you attachment is very hard to read, additionally it might be better idea to wrap the output inside [ code ][ /code ] tags.

Thanks for your sage guidance lhorace, I realise you may not know wtf you did to guide me but it was your advice on adopting zfs over basic lvm, I did so, took a fat minute or 10 but I now have a 250g 4 drive zfs pool with a win 10 vm running so far happily, thanks fella, appreciated.
