I have 4.1 installed with the default options of full disk encryption (except boot) and LVM with thin provisioning installed on a 250gb SSD, I now have a 500gb second SSD which has two partitions /dev/sdb1 and sdb2 on it. I have been looking around the forum, the qubes webite and across lots of search engines, and I can’t find the correct way to do this…
I converted the empty 300gb /dev/sdb1 to a physical volume so it shows as lvm2, then I did vgextend qubes-dom0 /dev/sdb1 thinking that vm-pool was a huge cluster of lvs, and it said it was successful. It was at this point i realised I was in over my head, with multiple tabs open and none really giving me the answer as to what to do next (or if I should have done that at all)
What I am trying to do is have the the original qubes install boot up and decrypt both physical disks and be able to use both for AppVms.
Could anyone please tell me - is this a good idea (to extend the vm-pool) or should sdb1 be a seperate volume group, and in either case, what do I do to extend the cryptsetup through both physical drives? Any help greatly appreciated.
