[linux-lvm] pvmove broken?



In the course of writing the lvm-manager, I was trying pvmove but it appears
horribly broken, alternately refusing to work of messing things up. I once
had to recreate all my physical volumes with -ff to get things working
again.

I tried this:

# vgcreate test /dev/hda3 /dev/hda4
vgcreate -- INFO: using default physical extent size 4 MB
vgcreate -- INFO: maximum logical volume size is 255.99 Gigabyte
vgcreate -- doing automatic backup of volume group "test"
vgcreate -- volume group "test" successfully created and activated

# lvcreate -n testvol -L 20M test
lvcreate -- doing automatic backup of "test"
lvcreate -- logical volume "/dev/test/testvol" successfully created

# lvchange -a n /dev/test/testvol
lvchange -- logical volume "/dev/test/testvol" changed
lvchange -- doing automatic backup of volume group "test"

# vgchange -a n test
vgchange -- volume group "test" successfully deactivated

# pvmove /dev/hda3
pvmove -- moving physical extents in inactive volume group "test"
pvmove -- WARNING: moving of active logical volumes may cause data loss!
pvmove -- do you want to continue? [y/n] y
pvmove -- ERROR "pv_move_pe(): PE lock" pv_move_pe

pvmove -- ERROR "pv_move_pe(): PE lock" moving physical extents

# pvmove /dev/hda4
pvmove -- no logical volumes on empty source physical volume "/dev/hda4"
 
##############

Some data which may be relevant:

# pvscan -v
pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- walking through all physical volumes found
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hda3" of VG "test" [52 MB / 32 MB free]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hda4" of VG "test" [52 MB / 52 MB free]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdb2"  is in no VG  [133.35 MB]
pvscan -- total: 3 [243.17 MB] / in use: 2 [109.82 MB] / in no VG: 1 [133.35
MB]
