[linux-lvm] Problem creating snapshot with 2.6.15, lvm2



Hey all,

I'm running lvm2 on a Debian box; LVM utilities version 2.01.04-5 and kernel version 2.6.15. I'm trying to create a snapshot, and get the following error:

fs:~# lvcreate -L1G -s -n Documents-backup /dev/HomeVG/Documents
  LV HomeVG/Documents-backup in use: not removing
  Couldn't deactivate new snapshot.
fs:~# lvscan
  ACTIVE            '/dev/HomeVG/Documents' [10.00 GB] inherit
  ACTIVE            '/dev/HomeVG/Documents-backup' [1.00 GB] inherit

Any idea what I can do to debug the above error? Documents-backup does not have a valid filesystem structure on it, but I can kill it with a lvremove.

Thanks!
