Re: [linux-lvm] duplicate PV error with 2.6.1 and lvm2 - resolved



That worked like a charm - thank you very much. I added:

devices { filter=["r|sd[a-z]|"] } to /etc/lvm/lvm.conf (to ignore /dev/sda and /dev/sdb) and everything else fell into place.

I am attempting to create a simple volume on a soft raid 1 device (/dev/md1) on a gentoo linux box running 2.6.1. The pvcreate seems to go fine but when I then attempt to create the volume group I get an odd error about duplicate PV's. It seems as if the code is sometimes treating the device as a single device and sometimes seeing the underlying disks. Any help would be appreciated.

either modify /etc/lvm/lvm.conf in order to ignore the devices that are
part of your md array or look at the patch i posted to this list under
the subject: "[patch] lvm2 and md component devices"
