To create a volume, use the Create command. The arguments the Create command accepts vary depending on what is being created. In the case of the example, the first argument is the key word volume that specifies what is being created. The second argument is the object being made into a volume, in this case lvm/Sample Container/Sample Region. The third argument is type specific for an EVMS volume, Name=, followed by what you want to call the volume, in this case Sample Volume. The following command creates the volume from the example.
