Re: [linux-lvm] Missing link in /dev/<domain>?



Alasdair,

Quick follow-up.  I said below that vgmknodes is correctly recreating
my link, but actually the symbolic link it is creating is pointing to
the non-working enty /dev/mapper/my-domain-data, not the working
-data-real entry.

Yes, I routinely perform a snapshot everynight via cron.  No idea if a
snapshot existed when the machine went down.

I renamed the manually created link from data to data.tmp, then ran vgmknodes.

The data link was successfully recreated.
