RE: [linux-lvm] LVM 1.0.4 pvmove is broken



	I must be doing something wrong. I've tried this on a second machine
(a PII-333 running RedHat 7.1), with a single processor to rule out SMP
issues, and I had the same results. I also tried using a local IDE disk to
rule out any SCSI/SAN driver issues (both of these machines are connected to
a Zzyzx Raid Head via Qlogic 2200 Fibre Channel cards). I'm basically
unpacking the 2.4.18 kernel, applying the LVM patch, making a few small
changes to the kernel configuration to add network drivers, etc, and then
building. Nothing fancy. I have discovered that as long as the VG is not
active, the pvmove will function. If the VG is active, it will fail every
time on while moving the second PE. 

	I ran pvmove with strace and this is where it hangs (The "..."
represents the llseek/read/write blocks that I removed)

write(1, "pvmove -- /dev/sdb [PE 305 [lv0 "..., 67pvmove -- /dev/sdb [PE 305
[lv0
[LE 0]] -> /dev/sdc [PE 0] [1/306]
) = 67
open("/dev/vg0/group", O_RDONLY)        = 6
ioctl(6, 0x4004fe50, 0xbffff1e0)        = 0
close(6)                                = 0
_llseek(4, 0, [1283719168], SEEK_CUR)   = 0
read(4, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 65536)
= 65536
write(5, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 65536)
= 65536
...
read(4, "\306\35\2\206\241\353?;\202\303ED\2306s\16\217\10\236\241"...,
65536) = 65536
write(5, "\306\35\2\206\241\353?;\202\303ED\2306s\16\217\10\236\241"...,
65536) = 65536
fsync(5)                                = 0
open("/dev/vg0/group", O_RDWR)          = 6
ioctl(6, 0x4004fe2b

	I'm going to try a different kernel - I was using 2.4.18 because I
wanted to eventually use XFS-1.1.

Thanks for any help,
