Re: [linux-lvm] pvmove errors



Carey,

which LVM/kernel versions are you using ?
The error tells that the change for the mapping in the LVM driver fails.

The mapping on disk (lvdisplay -Dv ...) doesn't get changed in that case.
Must be a flaw in the ioctl error return handling, because it obviously
got changed in the kernel as "lvdisplay -v " shows.
