Re: [linux-lvm] Some questions on "Mirrors cannot be resized while active yet"



I don't remember all the reasons, but I *think* two of them were:
1) 186304 - potential to spoil redundancy
2) cluster mirroring needed ability to hold to identical logs for a short period

Both of these issues have been resolved, so it may be a simple matter of turning it on...

Hi all,

lvresize gives the message "Mirrors cannot be resized while active yet."
when trying to resize an active lv.

Simple tests using directly dmsetup let me resize a mirror on the fly
without problems (maybe I'm missing some problematic corner cases). With
a core log everything was resynced every time while with disk log only
the extended part was resynced.

So, is there only missing code in lvm2 (curious to know if I should be
able to write the missing part) or also the kernel parts (dm-raid1,
dm-log and future dm-clog) needs some more code?

Thanks!

Bye!
