I'm sure there must be a simple way to do this but I haven't stumbled across it. I'm doing some remote management of a server someone else (no longer around) set up. The server uses logical volumes. How do I use the command line to list which partitions are grouped in which volumes? I'm sure there are gui volume management tools but I'm not where the server is.
Thanks in advance for any help!

vgchange -a y
Next, display the physical volumes used in logical groups:
List the logical volume groups themselves:
Lastly, the logical volumes themselves:
Hope this helps...

I'd tried various scan and display commands but somehow missed pvdisplay. That seems to do it. Thanks!
