Re: [Linux-cluster] problems with clvmd and lvms on rhel6.1



Yeah, Thanks. I checked your thread...if you  ment "clvmd hangs" however
It's like not finished... I see only 3 entries for that thread and
unfortunately no solution at the end. May I miss something?
However my scenario is a bit different, I don't need gfs, but only clvmd
with a failover lvm, as this is an active/passive configuration. And my
clvmd is rarely hanging, but my main problem that all the volumes remain
inactive.
