Dear All

We are planing to migrate physical whm/cpanel setup to a new hardware which will need to make lvm partition?

Has anyone guide or gone through this process ?

Hello :),

What is your HDD size ?

It's not necessary to create LVM partition on cPanel server. You can create normal partition on your server. But with the LVM partition you can easily increase partition size when you want.

Hello,

I suggest using "WHM >> Transfer Tool" if the hardware or partition configuration is different. The following documents will help you to get started:

How to Move All cPanel Accounts from One Server to Another - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
Transfer Tool - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
