Hi,
In a clustered environment, without GFS, we plan to use CLVMD exclusive
activation of VG's in order to prevent a VG to be activated on more than
1 node at a time.
I've been looking for how to check who holds a lock for a given VG but I
could'nt find no suitable way to do it.
The only way was to activate debug ( mount -t debugfs debug /debug) and
cat /debug/dlm/clvmd_locks.
Is there a way to request dlm (via dlm_tool) to get the lock holding
node or via  any LVM command.
Regards



Depending on the version you have dlm_tool will show you who holds the lock. But all it does is use the same debugfs interface you've already mentioned :-)
