[Fedora-xen] renaming vg for lvm backed domU



Hi,

I've got a FC5 dom0 where I've created a lvm backed domU I want to use as a
template. The domU works fine. If I create a new lv in the dom0 and dd the
orginal lv over to the new one, copy the xen conf file, update the path and
mac addr, the domU clone boots fine too.

However, I want the domU vg name to be different in the new domU. So, I used
kpartx to get to the new vg, and used vgrename to rename it. This works great
in the dom0, and I can get to all the lv's. However, when I try to reboot the
domU (after updating it's grub.conf and fstab, deleting it's /etc/lvm/cache,
and renaming the files and vg name in /etc/lvm/(backup|archive)/*), something
is still looking for the old vg name.

On boot, I see:

...
Kernel command line:  ro root=/dev/new/root s

In dom0:

# kpartx -a /dev/vm/new
# pvscan
  PV /dev/dm-15   VG new         lvm2 [9.88 GB / 1.94 GB free]
# lvscan
  inactive          '/dev/new/root' [1.00 GB] inherit
  inactive          '/dev/new/usr' [5.94 GB] inherit
  inactive          '/dev/new/swap' [1.00 GB] inherit

I mounted /dev/new/root and did a find 'etc -type f|xargs grep old', and
couldn't find any files that still referenced the 'old' vg. Anyone have any
idea what I'm missing?
