 Hi all,
  I am new to afs and tried to install an afs server on my Linux machine 
and Logical Volume Manager is used in my machine. When I try to start fs
server, it complains, I don't how to go further, and my kaserver,buserver 
,ptserver and vlserver runs ok. What's more the partition /vicep01 have no 
physical error. Only one difference is that 
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol03 is mounted to /vicep01 with LVM but not 
the normal partion method,eg. /dev/sda1. 

I'm wondering the fs server's death is due to the LVM. So I'm here to ask whether the openafs 
support the LVM. Any suggestions and comments are appreciated.

  I list the information below.
Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
