I want to upgrade LVM1 to LVM2 without data loose. Is there a way to do so without risk of data corruption.  This LVM1 resides in an always-runing server powered by Redhat Enterprise linux 3 (Taroon update 4) with kernel 2.4.21-27.0.2.Elsmp on i686.

you should make sure you have a full backup before you do any upgrade.

According to Heinz it should be OK to upgrade 1 to 2

You may need the newer kernel however which will require downtime.
