[linux-lvm] pvmove obliterates filesystem (Opensuse 10.2, x86-64)



(Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place for this.)  Yesterday I
ran a pvmove of a mounted filesystem, but something went wrong and the
filesystem was very badly damaged.  The box is a 2x quad-core box with
16gb running Opensuse 10.2 x86-64; it is under heavy load 24x7 (typical
 load average 15-20).  The storage is connected to a san via a QLogic
2462 dual-port FC HBA, using qla2400 (no dm-multipath).  Note:  I had
just completed a successful pvmove of another lv about 30 minutes prior
to this incident.


# pvmove --version
  LVM version:     2.02.13 (2006-10-27)
  Library version: 1.02.12 (2006-10-13)
  Driver version:  4.7.0

# uname -a
Linux somebox 2.6.18.2-34-default #1 SMP Mon Nov 27 11:46:27 UTC 2006

Here is the output from attempting to pvmove a 100gb lv:

# (time pvmove --verbose -n archlogs /dev/sdc @sata) >>

reiserfs_free_block: free_block (dm-13:13061734)[dev:blocknr]: bit
already cleared

...and many thousands more complaints from reiserfs.  Given the error
messages (especially "/dev/sdc: Moved: 60.0%") and the speed with which
the destruction occurred, my working hypothesis is that the first 60% of
the lv got repointed to the destination pv, but that the data got left
behind.

Are there any known issues with pvmove?  Is pvmove a supported
operation?  I had many pvmove-induced kernel oopses under Suse 9.3, but
up until this instance it had worked fine under Opensuse 10.2 for at
least 10 pvmoves on various boxes, all under load.

Thanks,
Brian
