[linux-lvm] lvm2 tools can't locate pvs on entire disks




I'm running into trouble here, getting the lvm scanning tools to notice PVs I have created on entire disks, like this:


pvcreate /dev/hdd

Some output:

root end root # lvm version
LVM version: 2.01.04 (2005-02-09)
Library version: 1.01.00-ioctl (2005-01-17)
Driver version: 4.1.0
root end root # uname -a
Linux end.snip.net 2.6.8 #6 Sat Oct 9 20:59:02 PDT 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
root end root # lvmdiskscan
/dev/hda1 [ 111.79 GB]
/dev/hdb1 [ 18.63 GB]
/dev/hdd1 [ 186.31 GB]
/dev/hdb2 [ 127.59 GB]
/dev/hdb3 [ 2.83 GB]
0 disks
5 partitions
0 LVM physical volume whole disks
0 LVM physical volumes
root end root # pvscan
No matching physical volumes found


Well that's odd, I know they're there.  Lets try this:

root end root # losetup /dev/loop0 /dev/hda
root end root # losetup /dev/loop1 /dev/hdd
root end root # pvscan
  PV /dev/loop0   VG media_vg   lvm2 [111.79 GB / 0    free]
  PV /dev/loop1   VG media_vg   lvm2 [186.31 GB / 0    free]
  Total: 2 [298.10 GB] / in use: 2 [298.10 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0   ]


There, now that they're not raw disks anymore I can find them with all the scanning utiliies and vgchange -a y them back to life.


Is this expected behavior?
