I support a SAP system (so far on solaris) at work. I make extensive use
of a volume manager there. On linux I have tried both LVM1 and EVMS. I
stopped using LVM1 the thrid time it caused me to restore after a clean
boot... This problem may well have been fixed in LVM2 - I have not used it.
On the other had EVMS has never scrambled my disks. It also offers more
options, including an encapsulated LVM1. From my perspective EVMS wins.
