Waiting for device /dev/vg00/root to appear: not found -- exiting to /bin/sh
Im getting errors when booting SUSE Linux 11 SP2 related to LVM:
Then I eventually get kicked to the shell. In which case I type 'exit' twice and the normal booting process continues. But its really annoying, occurs all the time.
I havent tried much yet, but Ive been reading for over a week.
(a) One thing I could try would to redo the ramdisk using mkinitrd
(b) Following other posts, Ive check that boot.lvm is activated
(c) I've also looked in 01-devfunctions.sh. Not sure what to do with it.
Overall, it seems init waits for root to come online, but it cant find it.
First post, if I've forgotten to put anything let me know :)
It seems you have more problems than just an unavailable root?
Did you update / upgrade the system?
If so, can you boot using older kernel & initrd?
When you get kicked to the shell, is / actually mounted?
You know when it started, can you extract from system logs just before?
(Like, on my Debian, "grep "Jan 20" /var/log/messages" )
No other problem as far as I know, I still think its all related to the same thing.
No update or upgrade, this is a new server.
I was/am not sure what that shell is. I guess I get dropped in single-user mode at a higher run-level? Anyhow, I haven't checked if '/' was mounted or not. I can try next time I have access to the system.
I've attached boot.msg.2013_01_05.log that is the bootup log from SUSE linux. There is nothing in /var/log/messages related to the bootup.
