Re: [linux-lvm] Volume group "vgs" not found



Thank you for helping. I kind of thought that it might be something like that. The 'vgs not found' was during bootup. Here is a snippet from /var/log/messages:

Jun 11 08:41:59 nimbus kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: qh 0000010000522320 (#0) state 1 Jun 11 08:42:02 nimbus smartd[5015]: Unable to register SCSI device / dev/sdb at line 30 of file /etc/smartd.conf Jun 11 08:42:02 nimbus smartd[5015]: Unable to register device /dev/ sdb (no Directive -d removable).

Jun 11 08:42:08 nimbus nfsd[5273]: nfssvc_versbits: +2 +3 +4

This was before I turned on lvm logging or I guess I had just turned it on. I know I've seen the same vgs not found in that log also, but I can't find it in there now. It must have rotated out of the log file, or I'm imagining things. I'm rebooting next week, so I should see the message in the lvm log then. I will post it when I do.

Thanks again,

Eli

if you can activate the volume group once the machine is up, it sounds like there is a problem in the initrd. Perhaps the static binaries there or the lvm config file it contains...

You turned on logging... When you see "vgs" not found, is that during bootup, or after?

('vgs' is an LVM command. There could be a script somewhere that is duplicating the string 'vgs' and inadvertently sending it as an argument...)

Might need more information for this one... :(

Dear all,

I'm running Centos 4, as part of a Rocks cluster. I have a 13 TB lvm2 volume. At boot up, the volume group doesn't get activated. When I run 'vgchange -ay' it activates the volume group without error and I can then mount it. I've turned lvm logging on and I notice the message 'toollib.c:508 vgchange Volume group "vgs" not found'. I don't think I have a 'vgs' volume group. At least I don't find I have one if I use tools like 'vgscan'. The only thing that shows up is my 13 TB volume, as it should be. I haven't been able to find any information on such an error. I used yum update to make sure I had the latest lvm2 packages for my distro. I can't upgrade distros, because that would screw other stuff up. Any info on this, or recommendations as to how I could track it down?

Thanks,

Eli
