    How did you partition the new drive? One big partition, or multiple smaller ones?

    When I setup the server I used two hard drives and allowed it to auto configure the partitions so I'd imagaine it did 2 partitions - 1 large 1 small!!

    I just want to try out LVM so it's on a VM so I can rebuild it if need be

    I partition the new drive with one large partition

    You can check that with
    Code:
    fdisk -l

    Is /dev/sdb the drive that you added?
