swap partitions RH 4.50
 
In a number of RH Enterprise 1.4.0 systems
I created a swap logical partition with the logical
parameters :

eds7:/root] # fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 146.1 GB, 146163105792 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17769 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 10 80293+ de Dell Utility
/dev/sda2 * 11 272 2104515 b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda3 273 297 200812+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 298 17769 140343840 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 298 17635 139267453+ 8e Linux LVM

--- Logical volume ---
LV Name /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01
VG Name VolGroup00
LV UUID 6Y3fjH-B0E1-2Hzp-53yC-a2VH-6fkG-LdltyX
LV Write Access read/write
LV Status available
# open 1
LV Size 15.62 GB
Current LE 500
Segments 1
Allocation inherit
Read ahead sectors auto
- currently set to 256
Block device 253:5
from anaconda :

#logvol swap --fstype swap --name=LogVol01 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=16000

We have a disaster recovery machine , which should be configured
similarily.

The installer did not follow the prototype , and for swap
has :

# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 146.1 GB, 146163105792 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17769 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

#part swap --noformat --onpart sda5

Is it possible to convert the swap unformatted partition
on this machine, to the swap logical volume the other machines have.

The swap unformatted logical partition looks undersized ,
