Re: [linux-lvm] clusteredVG+mirroredLV



I am using source with cvs tag RHEL4U4, and was able to go into
cmirror-kernel directory to build the module dm-cmirror.ko

After loading dm_cmirror module, the system-config-lvm tool
configured a mirrored LV in a clustered VG successfully.

Can someone in RedHat shed light on what's the current status of source
for cmirror-kernel and clustered mirroring? 
What's expected to work (such as normal IO), and
what's expected not to work yet ? For early bird developers who are interested in 
using this technology, do you have a recommended CVS tag for the source to do the prototype ? 

    Thanks,
    -ChiiSHing

Do you know when it will be released?
Will it work with with RHEL 5?
