Troubleshoot a Broken LVM Configuration
LVM archives take a backup of the file system every time a major action is taken against the file system itself (such as a change in volume group size). These backups can then be used to restore an LVM volume to a functioning state should something go wrong with the disk. In this lab, you will use one of these backups to recover an LVM configuration after the file system fails to mount. _This lab is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat._
