Is mount point for LVM partition groups important?

Recently, I replaced my Fedora 29 with a fresh new installation of Fedora 30 GNOME.

I realized that, there is a LVM partition group containing: root, home, and swap partitions (which is fine, since I choose “automatic partitioning with LVM method” at the time I was installing Fedora 30 in Anaconda installer)!

But the thing that keeps me wondering here is that, the mount point of this Volume Group is set to “fedora_localhost_live” by Anaconda installer, and as far as I know, this mount-point is not an acceptable/unique mount point!

So, now the question is that, Is this mount-point important at the first place?
if yes, then why did Anaconda choose this mount point for this LVM volume group?

PS. If it matters, Fedora 30 is running on GPT-UEFI system and the partition table is as follows:

Device         Start        End   Sectors   Size Type
/dev/sda1       2048     411647    409600   200M EFI System
/dev/sda2     411648    2508799   2097152     1G Linux filesystem
/dev/sda3    2508800  725618687 723109888 344.8G Linux LVM

An LVM Volume Group (VG) does not have a mount point but a name. An LVM Logical Volume (LV) is what ends up being the partition which is actually mounted somewhere. It appears your Volume Group was named fedora_localhost_live by the installer. It’s derived from the hostname specified, something like fedora_<hostname>.

The name of the VG is not an issue as long as you’re not moving around hard drives. You can actually change the name with vgrename. Be careful with it though, some boot time things might still have the old name noted in them, those would have to be updated as well. Most notably in /etc/default/grub among other places. I do not know which other places :smile:
