Re: [Linux-cluster] Fwd: CLVM exclusive mode



Hi Christine,

  I can always activate the vg via 'vgchange -ay', regardless to the
exclusive activation on other nodes.
The reason is that the do_lock_lv is actually called by
process_remote_command, and then the EX
lock is convert to CR.

  I'm not so convinced this is the desired behavior. Is there any
reason behind this ?

  Thanks.
