RE: [linux-lvm] Moving Xen LV to image and mounting the image.



Ok, forgive me I am fairly new to LV's, it was part of the RHCE test but I have never really had to use them until I started using a SAN and Xen.

No more losetup! 

[root wdcxen1 ~]# mount -t xfs -o loop,ro,noatime,nodev,nofsck ~/wdcdns1.img /mnt/tmp/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so


tail /var/log/messages

Nov 14 10:44:50 wdcxen1 kernel: XFS: unknown mount option [nofsck].

[root wdcxen1 ~]# modprobe -l | grep xfs
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.13.el5xen/kernel/fs/freevxfs/freevxfs.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.13.el5xen/extra/xfs/xfs.ko
