While trying to get my desired partitioning scheme.
LVM = 1TB
LVM-thin = 1TB
Remaining = reserved for further use
I read the  Advanced LVM configuration options but didn't understand  the
use of hdsize, maxroot, minfree and maxvz
so , then  tried multiple combinations with following result.

+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| hd size   | 2000 | 2000 | 2000 | 2000 | 2000 |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| swap size |      |      |      |      |      |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| maxroot   |      |      |      | 1000 |      |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| min free  | 1000 |      |      |      | 1000 |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| maxvz     | 1000 | 1000 |      |      |      |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
|  result (gb)                                 |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| LVM       | 96   | 96   | 96   | 96   |   96 |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+
| LMVthin   | 980  | 980  | 1800 | 1800 | 877  |
+-----------+------+------+------+------+------+



As you can see , LVM partition is always 96GB.
1)Can I change this result with proper combination of hdsize,
maxroot,minfree and maxvz params?
As I mentioned I need it to be 1TB.
2) Should I enlarge it later, after install process ? Can you point some
doc with this process?

Regards,
Leandro.
