Adding a new disk to an LVM Ubuntu system

Today I'm adding another disk to my main Linux server.

I used cgdisk to write a partition table. I set the partition type to 8e00 for LVM (Logical Volume Manager?)

sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb1

$ sudo lvcreate --extents 100%FREE -n lvdisk2 vgdisk2 
  Logical volume "lvdisk2" created

$ sudo vgcreate vgdisk2 /dev/sdb1

  Volume group "vgdisk2" successfully created

sudo mkdir /mnt/disk2
sudo mount /dev/vgdisk2/lvdisk2 /mnt/disk2/

And it's up!
