Create Mirroring Volume.
[1] For example, create a Mirroring Volume with Physical Volume [/dev/sdb1] and [/dev/sdc1].
# create volume group [vg_mirror] with [/dev/sdb1] and [/dev/sdc1]

vgcreate vg_mirror /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1

  Volume group "vg_mirror" successfully created

# create mirroring volume

lvcreate -L 50G -m1 -n lv_mirror vg_mirror

  Logical volume "lv_mirror" created.

lvdisplay /dev/vg_mirror/lv_mirror

[2] Configure like follows if you'd like to set mirroring volume from a logical volume which is already running.
# extend volume group

vgextend vg_dlp /dev/sdc1

  Volume group "vg_dlp" successfully extended

# set mirror volume

lvconvert -m1 /dev/vg_dlp/lv_data /dev/sdc1
Are you sure you want to convert linear LV vg_dlp/lv_data to raid1 with 2 images enhancing resilience? [y/n]: y

[3] Unset Mirroring Volume.
# specify -m0 to unset

lvconvert -m0 /dev/vg_mirror/lv_mirror

Are you sure you want to convert raid1 LV vg_mirror/lv_mirror to type linear losing all resilience? [y/n]: y
