File lvm.conf of Package lvm2

# This is an example configuration file for the LVM2 system.
# It contains the default settings that would be used if there was no
# /etc/lvm/lvm.conf file.

# Refer to 'man lvm.conf' for further information including the file layout.

# To put this file in a different directory and override /etc/lvm set

# be used by the LVM system.

    # to use with LVM2.
    scan = [ "/dev" ]

    # A filter that tells LVM2 to only use a restricted set of devices.
    # The filter consists of an array of regular expressions.  These
    # expressions can be delimited by a character of your choice, and
    # prefixed with either an 'a' (for accept) or 'r' (for reject).
    # The first expression found to match a device name determines if
    # the device will be accepted or rejected (ignored).  Devices that
    # don't match any patterns are accepted.

    # Remember to run vgscan after you change this parameter to ensure 
    # that the cache file gets regenerated (see below).

    # By default we accept every block device except udev names:
    filter = [ "r|/dev/.*/by-path/.*|", "r|/dev/.*/by-id/.*|", "a/.*/" ]

    # Exclude the cdrom drive
    # filter = [ "r|/dev/cdrom|" ]

    # When testing I like to work with just loopback devices:

    # Use anchors if you want to be really specific
    # filter = [ "a|^/dev/hda8$|", "r/.*/" ]

    # The results of the filtering are cached on disk to avoid
    # rescanning dud devices (which can take a very long time).  By
    # default this cache file is hidden in the /etc/lvm directory.
    # It is safe to delete this file: the tools regenerate it.
