Re: [libvirt] VG backed storage pool start behavior.



It was a distro specific issue. Arch Linux has the lvm tools in /usr/sbin instead of /sbin. I made links for lvs, vgs, and vgchange and the issue cleared up. Reported a bug for the package.

It looks like we're trying to deactivate the volumes when starting the
pool, which is what happens when we can't refresh the pool succesfully.

Deactivation fails, since some of the volumes are still open, and this
overwrites the previous error message.

Try looking in libvirtd.log if there is another error message before
this one.
