[linux-lvm] kernel reports vg twice



Since I got exactly no response to this I'll report it with a
different subject.

LVM still does not work for me on one of my machines work:

cloud:/dev/discs/disc1# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "vg_user"
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of your volume group

cloud:/dev/discs/disc1# vgchange -a y
vgchange -- ERROR: VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent; please run vgscan

I did a bit of looking around and it seems the confusement is in the
kernel: when lvm_check_kernel_lvmtab_consistency() compares the kernel
and the lvmtab entries the list from the kernel mentions the vg_user
volume group twice, while the lvmtab only mentions it once. This
results in an immediate abort and as a result I can't do anything
with the LVM tools.

Wichert.
