action #40682

Updated by riafarov about 3 years ago

In the partitioner is possible to create an LVM VG on top of partitions and disks (without partition table) alike. I'm not sure if we have a test-case using that functionality or if all our tests define the LVM always based on partitions.

If we don't have it, it would be nice to add it.

Automation is out of scope of the ticket, we should create follow up ticket, we have AY test on 64 bit already, as of now this is already good. But we should come up with some scenario which would be beneficial to automate.

## Acceptance criteria
1. Functionality is tested manually using TW, Leap 15.1, SLE 15 SP1 which contain changes
2. Draft New test plan for the feature which creates lvm on a disk instead of dedicated LVM partition is create created
3. Follow up ticket for Automated test performs installation and relevant check only
4. Stability of
the automated test is created depending assured before enabling on the outcome of the production
5. Automated
test plan is enabled for SLE 15 SP1 and TW at least
6. autoyast/verify_disk_as_pv test module is reused for installation validation

## Suggestions
Things to test and not limited to:
1. plain lvm with btrfs
2. plain lvm with ext4
3. volume group on multiple partitons
4. volume group on multiple disks
5. 1-4 with encrypted lvm (for VG)
6. 1-4 with encrypted lvm and encrypted partitions in VG
7. VG with a disk and lvm partition
8. Activation of the disk partitions by installer when having a disk with installations from 1-7
9. At least perform one autoyast re-installation (install -> clone system -> install using created profile), use testing strategies here not to repeat this step for 1-8
10. Whole disk as a single partition
11. Special disks (DASD, ZFCP, iSCSI)
