Re: [linux-lvm] Hide volume group during startup



Hi,

there is only one dm-device in /dev:

...
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root         100 2012-04-05 12:50 disk
brw-rw----  1 root disk    251,  18 2012-04-05 12:51 dm-18
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root          80 2012-04-05 12:51 drbd
...

/dev/data/kvm_disk0 is a blockdevice for drbd, so there are many drbd files in /dev

...
brw-rw----  1 root disk    147,  20 2012-04-08 11:48 drbd20
...

drbd20 is the drbd resource using kvm_disk0 as device.

The symlink in /dev/data/ is:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   24 2012-04-05 12:51 kvm_disk0 -> ../mapper/data-kvm_disk0

Should I be using this:

filter = [ "r|/dev/mapper/data-kvm_disk0|", "r|/dev/kvm_disk0|", "a|.*|"]
 
I know, it is a little bit confusing.
The LV in VG data is called kvm_disk0 and the VG initiated on this device is also called kvm_disk0.

Sorry, but thank you for help.

Regards,
Erik

To filter a device-mapper device you also have to filter out the
/dev/dm-N device nodes that udev manages. There's also a symlink from
/dev/$VG_NAME/$LV_NAME to the dm-N node (although I think that should be
handled by filtering /dev/dm-N).

I'd be using something like:

    [ "r|/dev/dm.*|", "r|/dev/$VG_NAME|", "a|.*|"]

Alternately (and I prefer this for many configurations) you can accept
("a|..|") the device you need for the data VG and reject all other
devices ("r|.*|").

Tags but since you're not currently filtering dm-N nodes I would try
that first.

Regards,
Bryn.
