Re: [linux-lvm] Single snapshots do weird things?



Hey, that fixed it! I've created 5 snapshots with copying/deleting
files in between, and they've all worked!

Well, except for one. I copied a file and took a snapshot and the file
wasn't in the snapshot. Running sync and making another snapshot *did*
have the file, though.

Is it mandatory to sync the filesystem before taking a snapshot?

Stick to using read/write snapshots for now. With read-only ones, it seems the COW device is incorrectly getting set read-only.
