Tips for LVM

Install pv

pv needs the universe repository enabled on Ubuntu before it can be installed.

sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pv


Use pv to copy disks and/or individual partitions with a progress indicator. No intermediate image is needed.

# Basic Command
pv < source > dest
# Copy Disk (All Partitions)
pv < /dev/sda > /dev/sdb
# Copy Partition
pv < /dev/sda1 > /dev/sdb2

Rename UUID on new partition
