Re: [linux-lvm] vgscan & CDROM



Hi

It is hard to believe I'm the only person for whom the vgscan
filtering doesn't work as expected.
Would anybody of you do a small test for me and send the result:

    put an empty CD/DVD into the drive
    vgscan -v -v -v -d 2>&1 | grep cdrom
    lvm version

Provided your CD/DVD has a "cdrom" in the devicefile name.

Please note if there is no media in the drive you won't see cdrom
if you run vgscan, vgscan -v or vgscan -v -v

Thanks for your time.

Regards,
Chris
