- This assumes each disk is an independent volume group as far as LVM is concerned. This is probably the only sane way to have BTRFS RAID on LVM anyway.
- It is critically important to specify each device separately – i.e.
1: and then separately
2:. You must add more commands if you have more than 2 devices. The (terrible) default is to alter device 1 only.
- I have verified that the units are equivalent – i.e. what btrfs calls 1G is exactly the same number of bytes as what lvreduce calls 1G.
btrfs fi res is synchronous, no need to wait between commands
- All of this must (not just can, but must) be done online with the filesystem mounted
