How to update to a newer lvm.conf file after Proxmox 7 to 8 inplace Upgrade


Feb 19, 2022
Hello there,

i just upgrade my Proxmox 7 to 8 by using the inplace upgrade command.
Everything worked well, but at the point of updating the lvm.conf or keep the old setup, i choosed to keep it.

Now i would like to update the lvm.conf to the maintainer's version like described int the upgrade tutorial
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf -> Changes relevant for Proxmox VE will be updated, and a newer config version might be useful.If you did not make extra changes yourself and are unsure it's suggested to choose "Yes" (install the package maintainer's version) here.
How can i replace the file?

Thank you very much.
