Re: [linux-lvm] LVM Problems :)

Hi there!

Big thanks for the very fast answer!!
Much appreciated!

So What lvreduce size should i use to shrink it?
I better have a guru look over it, better safe than
sorry :)

the size of your filesystem and logical volume differs already.
That's why e2fsadm fails.
Did you eventually run resize2fs in order to shrink the filesystem ?

Your logical volume size is 1091456MB (32MB/PE * 34108 PE) but your
filesystem size is 963584GB (941GB * 1024MB/GB; check with
"tune2fs -l" and look for the block count and block size to calculate
this correctly).

In case the result shows, that your filesystem is already smaller than the LV,
lvreduce the logical volume appropriately.

Use the block count * block size result and round it up to the next PE!

I am trying to dissolve a running LVM, so i am doing
the e2fsadm, lvreduce, pvmove thingy. But ever since I
removed the first hdd, I am unable to resize the lvm
any more. The error can be seen below, with e2fsadm.
I also included the vg&lvdisplay commands.

I am running the LVM1 sources (non-cvs, approx mid last
year), as i am unable to run LVM2 (need to downgrade kernel
to 2.4.22 (no patch included in lvm2 for 2.4.23)).
Also, I am (too dumb/unable) to locate a e2fsadm alike
tool for lvm2, as e2fsadm needs the lvm-tab thingy,
which lvm2 no longer provides.

Any help is greatly appreciated. :)
