Creating a new file system in Linux

Here how you would create a new file system :

  1. First create a new partition using fdisk. eg:
    fdisk /dev/sdb     –> Options (m , n,p,1,  ,t,8e,w)
  2. Create volume group
    vgcreate myvg /dev/sdb1
  3. Create a logical volume
    lvcreate -L 512G -n my_lv myvg
  4. mkfs.ext4 /dev/myvg/my_lv
  5. You can optionally add the file system in /etc/fstab to automatically mount
  6. Mount /myfilesystem
