    hi this has probably been covered already so appreciate if someone could post references.

    problem:

    i have lvm on my only disk with promox. Now i have 2 additional hds i want to add from a different machine.

    disk 1 has 1 partition used to be mounted as /movies
    disk 2 has 2 partitions used to be mounted as /music + /scratchspace

    all are ext4 and im using the latest .32 kernel for proxmox.

    i want to be able to physically add those to my proxmox box and want to be able to samba/locally mount them from all vms AND have it visible to the rest of the network.

    so im thinking i dont want to delete anything firstly from the disks and i will probably need to use samba. question is how and can this be achieved?

    thx

    Exactly the same way as You always do such things on debian. Plug it in, mount it and setup samba.

    ok thats a relief. my concern is if proxmox will start taking over and lvm it thus wiping. so what youre suggesting is that lvm and non-lvm can coexist?

    why not? lvm does not wipe any disk plugged in.
