Re: [linux-lvm] Volume group "vgs" not found

if you can activate the volume group once the machine is up, it sounds like there is a problem in the initrd. Perhaps the static binaries there or the lvm config file it contains...

You turned on logging... When you see "vgs" not found, is that during bootup, or after?

('vgs' is an LVM command. There could be a script somewhere that is duplicating the string 'vgs' and inadvertently sending it as an argument...)

Might need more information for this one... :(

Dear all,

I'm running Centos 4, as part of a Rocks cluster. I have a 13 TB lvm2 volume. At boot up, the volume group doesn't get activated. When I run 'vgchange -ay' it activates the volume group without error and I can then mount it. I've turned lvm logging on and I notice the message 'toollib.c:508 vgchange Volume group "vgs" not found'. I don't think I have a 'vgs' volume group. At least I don't find I have one if I use tools like 'vgscan'. The only thing that shows up is my 13 TB volume, as it should be. I haven't been able to find any information on such an error. I used yum update to make sure I had the latest lvm2 packages for my distro. I can't upgrade distros, because that would screw other stuff up. Any info on this, or recommendations as to how I could track it down?
