Re: [linux-lvm] vgscan changing/resetting perms?



I totally agree for general purposes. However,  the users/app in question are Oracle/Sybase Databases writing directly to the devices.

Then I go ahead and reboot the host or someone comes along and runs a 
vgscan.  VOILA!  The perms for those files reset to root:root.   How do 
I prevent that from happeneing?  I want it so that I can make a device 
and set its perms to some user, and forget about it.   Is that even 
possible? If so, how? Or, what am I doing wrong in setting up the lv/vg's?
    
One generally doesn't let non-root users have direct access to
devices. Instead you should format and mount the filesystems on
those drives and give users access to that.
