LVM snapshot creation error
I'm seeing the error below when creating an LVM2 snapshot. Has anyone run into something similar and have a clue what's going on?
After the above lvcreate, lvdisplay lists the /dev/vg0/sss LV, but with a line "#open 0". All other LV's have "#open 1"
/var/log/syslog has this error, triggered by the lvcreate (where xxxx are digits):
hal.dev[xxxx]: DEVNAME is not set
lvremove /dev/vg0/sss appears to work without error. After running lvremove, lvdisplay no longer shows the /dev/vg0/sss LV.
Is this possibly a timing issue ???
Some additional info on my problem:
I walked away for 30 minutes, came back and tried the lvcreate again. IT WORKED!
So I ran the lvremove, then tried the lvcreate immediately after that. IT FAILED AGAIN.
So this appears to be some kind of timing thing. If I wait long enough after the lvremove before re-trying lvcreate, things work. It could be my previous report about not seeing problems in Sarge might be wrong (I'll have to check tomorrow). I only did lvcreate/lvremove once on Sarge and it appears to be the second and subsequent lvcreates that generate the error on Sid (until whatever times out, times out, and things get reset!)
Now I'm really confused! :confused:
