Re: [linux-lvm] problem running vgscan..Is it a megaraid issue or an LVM issue ??



Christian,

are the Megaraid devices all accessable (driver module loaded/linked in)
when vgscan runs on reboot?

If you've got "vg1" online and then run vgscan and loose it again, I need
the "vgscan -d" output. Please send it to <mge sistina com> directly.

That means that the buffers are still in use when LVM tries to invalidate
them. You can ignore these messages. They don't cause any harm to your data.
Later LVM driver versions avoid that invalidation.
