Re: [linux-lvm] *** ANNOUNCEMENT *** LVM 0.9.1 beta1 available at www.sistina.com

down this problem.    It really can trip you up.

You can see the problem Jan mentioned very easily.

# pvcreate /dev/hda2 /dev/hdc2
pvcreate -- physical volume "/dev/hda2" successfully created
pvcreate -- physical volume "/dev/hdc2" successfully created
# vgcreate vg00 /dev/hda2 /dev/hdc2
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 "vg00"
vgcreate -- volume group "vg00" successfully created and activated
# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "vg00"
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of your volume group

All is fine. But if vg00 is created with

# vgcreate vg00 /dev/hdc2 /dev/hda2
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 "vg00"
vgcreate -- volume group "vg00" successfully created and activated
# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "vg00"
vgscan -- ERROR "pv_check_consistency_all_pv(): PE" volume group "vg00" is inconsistent
vgscan -- ERROR: unable to do a backup of volume group "vg00"
vgscan -- ERROR "lvm_tab_vg_remove(): unlink" removing volume group "vg00" from "/etc/lvmtab"
vgscan -- ERROR "lvm_tab_vg_remove(): unlink" creating "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d


The following patch from Jan (with a minor correction "against" segfaults :-)
corrected the problem for me:
