Any help will be very much appreciated.

LVM is installed by default when you install the OS.  Are you trying to create a new filesystem on a new disk, or do you want to make the current disk a LVM?

If you want to make the current disk a LVM, it would probably be easier to reinstall and use LVM during installation.

Can you post the output of the vgs command?  Simply switch to root and type vgs at the prompt.

system-config-lvm is no longer available  in Centos 7 and has been replaced with system storage manager in Centos 7:

yum install system-storage-manager -y
ssm list

Open in new window

Apparently this installed it:
yum install system-storage-manager -y

However, I still need run it in  GUI mode

There isn't a LVM GUI in Redhat 7. (As far as I know right now)

You need to use 6 if you must use GUI to maintain LVM.

None at home base either:
No storage GUI

Also XFS is not a golden egg - there is no way to shrink it unlike EL6/ext4

btw fedora just introduced blivet-gui that will hopefully fill the space, and redhat tends to release new relese of sub-standard quality, so just sit back, install CentOS6, and wait for 7U1 or U2 (btw this time they support upgrade)
