[linux-lvm] "Close failed: Bad file descriptor" messages on pvcreate



Hi,

When I do pvcreate, I get deluged with "pvcreate  /dev/sdf: close failed:
Bad file descriptor" messages.

I need to explicity open another session to kill the previous pvcreate
instance to get out of this situation.

On the same system, pvcreate another device succeeds.

Distro:  RHEL 4.0 GA version
version  LVM version:     2.00.31 (2004-12-12)
version  Library version: 1.00.19-ioctl (2004-07-03)
version  Driver version:  4.3.0

:~ # dd if=/dev/sdf of=/dev/null bs=1k count=2
2+0 records in
2+0 records out
:~ # dd if=/dev/sde of=/dev/null bs=1k count=2
2+0 records in
2+0 records out

# pvcreate /dev/sde
pvcreate  Physical volume "/dev/sde" successfully created

# pvcreate /dev/sdf
pvcreate  /dev/sdf: close failed: Bad file descriptor
pvcreate  /dev/sdf: close failed: Bad file descriptor
pvcreate  /dev/sdf: close failed: Bad file descriptor
pvcreate  /dev/sdf: close failed: Bad file descriptor


Same messages till I kill pvcreate explicitly.

I see that lvmdiskscan does NOT list /dev/sdf but does list /dev/sde

Note: I did a vgscan/pvscan explicitly after doing a "make install" of the
built 2.00.31 sources.

When I downgrade the lvm version (say: 2.00.15), make and make install --
everything seems to work find
and I am able to do a PV on both sde and sdf.  And I am able to see both
devices in lvmdiskscan output.

Any idea on what's happening here?

Thanks,
Vinod
