[linux-lvm] Can't reduce lvm2 volume. I get "Volume group mapper doesn't exist"



Hi!

I have a problem reducing a logical volume and I'm sure it's just some
silly error, but I can't get my head around it.

I've got lvm2-2.02.01-1.3.RHEL4 installed on kernel-2.6.9-34.ELsmp.

This is what I got mounted:

# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2      49G   20G   27G  42% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1      99M  9.8M   84M  11% /boot
/dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol00
                       97G   84G  8.1G  92% /home

                       97G   11G   81G  12% /usr/local
/dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol01
                       97G   84G  8.3G  91% /var

I want to shrink /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol02 from 97G to 20G, and this
is what I tried.

# umount /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol02

# e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol02

But here I get error messages:
# lvreduce -L 20G -v /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol02
    Finding volume group mapper
    Wiping cache of LVM-capable devices
  Volume group mapper doesn't exist

I also tried:
# lvresize -L 20G -v /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol02
    Finding volume group mapper
    Wiping cache of LVM-capable devices
  Volume group mapper doesn't exist

I then mounted the device again and saw it was 20G big. But no more
extra size had been added to the volume group...

What am I doing wrong???

Really appreciate any help!

Marcus
