[linux-lvm] pvmove errors



Hi,

I'm getting errors from pvmove, similar to a problem reported in December (
http://lists.sistina.com/pipermail/linux-lvm/2002-December/012973.html),
though I'm not sure if it's exactly the same.  Here's the relevant pvmove
output:

# pvmove -v -n /dev/backups2/rje /dev/sdd1 /dev/sda6
...
pvmove -- starting to move linear logical volume "/dev/backups2/rje"
pvmove -- checking for enough free physical extents in "backups2"
pvmove -- /dev/sdd1 [PE 0 [rje [LE 0]] -> /dev/sda6 [PE 2542] [1/6400]
/dev/backups2/group::/dev/backups2/rje: 0831 65920, 0806 166658560
pvmove -- ERROR "Invalid argument" copying extent from "/dev/sdd1"

pvmove -- ERROR "Invalid argument" remapping
pvmove -- ERROR "pv_move(): LE of LV remap" moving physical extents

I believe this is telling me that pvmove is having a problem copying PE 0 on
/dev/sdd1 to PE 2542 on /dev/sda6....  Yet lvdisplay indicates that LE 0 is
already on /dev/sda6, PE 02542 -- if I understand it correctly:

# lvdisplay -v /dev/backups2/rje |head -25

pvdisplay confirms that PE 0 on /dev/sdd1 is free, and LE 0 is already on
/dev/sda6, PE 2542:

Am I reading this correctly?  Any ideas what the problem is, or how to fix
it?  I've been moving several LVs from /dev/sdd1 to /dev/sda6; all completed
successfully.  This, the last one, is giving me an error.

Thanks in advance for any help....!
