I feel guilty posting this since there are numerous posts around with similar problems, however, I don't believe a solution exists.
Specifically, I'm running CentOS4. I've implemented LVM, and it's been running fine up until the last update I did. After a reboot the logical volumes come up with a status "NOT Available", and fail to be mounted as part of the boot process. After the boot process, I'm able to "lvchange -ay ..." to make the logical volumes "available" then mount them. From that point everything seems to work fine.
What I did before the logical volumes stopped mounting during bootup is an update from the repos. Here's a list of what was changed:
Nov 23 18:52:40 Updated: libvorbis.i386 1:1.1.0-3.el4_8.3
Nov 23 18:52:42 Updated: wget.i386 1.10.2-1.el4_8.1
Nov 23 18:53:13 Installed: kernel.i686 2.6.9-89.0.16.EL
Nov 23 18:53:15 Updated: kernel-utils.i386 1:2.4-20.el4
Nov 23 18:53:15 Updated: httpd-suexec.i386 2.0.52-41.ent.6.centos4
Nov 23 18:53:17 Updated: httpd.i386 2.0.52-41.ent.6.centos4
I really want to avoid a work around that involves me inserting "lvchange -ay ..." in some script as part of the boot process. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
