For several months now I have a problem on one of my fedora servers about lvm groups.
I wanted to disable the swap since it was installed on a raid1 of ssd and I wasn’t really needed swap. So to avoid the burn out of the SSD I wanted to disable it.
Which I did with swapoff , comment the line in fstab, and even delete the part of swap mentionned into
But the side effect of that was the disabling of the entire lvm group. I had the swap on it and a VM storage partition.
I can’t get them online at boot since. That was under fedora31. I4ve upgraded to fedora32. same deal.
I can activate them after the launch with
vgchange -ay . That makes the trick to make the volume active.
Like described in this post, the boot hangs for the complete timer for volume to be recognized 1m30 which it doesn’t get.
my line in /etc/default/grub is
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.md.uuid=2288906c:a632e97e:62188968:fb280734 rd.md.uuid=98b1c9f2:748fa6b9:13fc9f6b:fa19834f rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/fedoravm rd.md.uuid=50e7918f:47e59639:82924552:f9287385 systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=0 rhgb quiet"

Can someone tell me to reactivate the whole volume at boot? And explain to me why this is happening?
And in the end I would still gladly like to deactivate the RAM but keep my VM volume alive. IS that even possible?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
