I'd like to migrate a Redhat 7.2 system to one lvm and xfs.
I'd prefer having one physical volume containing one volume group
with logical volumes containing only xfs filesystems (including /,
/usr, etc.).

The only thing that bothers me is: Will it be possible to upgrade
the system (e.g. to a future Redhat 7.3) using SGI's version of the
Redhat installer? Will the installer recognize the filesystems that are
inside lvm logical volumes? (I don't want to ask you about any
predictions about the future capabilities of the Redhat installer but
is there any way to do such an upgrade using the current installer?)

Thanks in advance,
