[Linux-cluster] CLVM not activating LVs



Hi! CLVM not activating logical volumes.



I have a major issues with CLVM. It is not activating volumes in my
VG's. I have 2 iSCSI volumes, and one SAS volume with 3 VG's. On
node01, all logical volumes in 1 iSCSI and on SAS are activated. Other
iSCSI - zero. On node02 same situation. On node03 only lv's from SAS
are activated. lvm.conf is same on the machines....

This is very strange, because when I boot the machines, all the
services are stopped, so logical volumes shouldn't be activated.

Here is the situation:

[root node01 lvm]# vgs
  VG          #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize  VFree
  VolGroupC0    1   7   0 wz--nc  3.41T 1.48T
  VolGroupC1    1   0   0 wz--nc  3.41T 3.41T
  VolGroupSAS   1   2   0 wz--nc 20.63G 4.63G

[root node01 lvm]# lvs
  LV            VG          Attr   LSize
  nered1        VolGroupC0  -wi-a- 200.00G
  nered2        VolGroupC0  -wi-a- 200.00G
  nered3        VolGroupC0  -wi-a-   1.46T
  nered4        VolGroupC0  -wi-a-  20.00G
  nered5        VolGroupC0  -wi-a-  20.00G
  nered6        VolGroupC0  -wi-a-  20.00G
  nered7        VolGroupC0  -wi-a-  20.00G
  sasnered0     VolGroupSAS -wi-a-   8.00G
  sasnered1     VolGroupSAS -wi-a-   8.00G                     

[root node03 cache]# vgs
  VG          #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize  VFree
  VolGroupC0    1   0   0 wz--nc  3.41T 3.41T
  VolGroupC1    1   0   0 wz--nc  3.41T 3.41T
  VolGroupSAS   1   2   0 wz--nc 20.63G 4.63G

[root node03 lvm]# lvs
  LV          VG          Attr   LSize Origin
  sasnered0   VolGroupSAS -wi-a-   8.00G
  sasnered1   VolGroupSAS -wi-a-   8.00G


here is my lvm.conf:

[root node01 lvm]# lvm dumpconfig
  devices {
  	dir="/dev"
  	scan="/dev"
  	preferred_names=[]
  	filter=["a|^/dev/mapper/controller0$|",
"a|^/dev/mapper/controller1$|", "a|^/dev/mapper/sas-xen$|", "r|.*|"]
  	cache_dir="/etc/lvm/cache"
  	cache_file_prefix=""
  	write_cache_state=0
  	sysfs_scan=1
  	md_component_detection=1
  	md_chunk_alignment=1
  	ignore_suspended_devices=0
  }
  dmeventd {
  	mirror_library="libdevmapper-event-lvm2mirror.so"
  	snapshot_library="libdevmapper-event-lvm2snapshot.so"
  }
  activation {
  	missing_stripe_filler="error"
  	reserved_stack=256
  	reserved_memory=8192
  	process_priority=-18
  	mirror_region_size=512
  	readahead="auto"
  	mirror_log_fault_policy="allocate"
  	mirror_device_fault_policy="remove"
  }
  global {
  	library_dir="/usr/lib64"
  	umask=63
  	test=0
  	units="h"
  	activation=1
  	proc="/proc"
  	locking_type=3
  	fallback_to_clustered_locking=1
  	fallback_to_local_locking=1
  	locking_dir="/var/lock/lvm"
  }
  shell {
  	history_size=100
  }
  backup {
  	backup=1
  	backup_dir="/etc/lvm/backup"
  	archive=1
  	archive_dir="/etc/lvm/archive"
  	retain_min=10
  	retain_days=30
  }
  log {
  	verbose=0
  	syslog=1
  	overwrite=0
  	level=0
  	indent=1
  	command_names=0
  	prefix="  "
  }


Note that logical volumes form C1 were present on node01 and node02,
but after the node03 joined cluster they dissapeared. I'm running
CentOS 5.3.

This is really dissapointing. Enterprise Linux? Linux maybe but not
Enterprise... After much trouble with linux dm-multipath issues with my
storage - which are unresolved and are waiting for RHEL 5.4, now clvmd.

Note that locking (DLM), cman, rgmanager, qdisk and all the other
cluster services are working without problems. I just don't get it why
is CLVM behaving this way? 

I'm thinking about switching to non-clustered LVM - but are there
issues with possible corruption of metadata? I won't create any new
volumes nor snapshots or anything similar. Setup is done and it should
work like this for the extended period of time.... But are there issues
with activation or something else changing metadata?
