Re: [linux-lvm] Simulating LVM Mirror Failure and recovery

vu pham schrieb:

as per the redhat guide this should result in mirror leg failure and any subsequent write activity to the mirror should convert the mirror into linear volume. but the output of lvs command still shows copy % as 100%. also data in filesystem of lv1 is erased and it is converted into read only filesystem.

can anyone please let us know the correct way to simulate lvm mirror failure and recovery.

thanks and regards

I think to simulate error failure you have to write to the underlying devices, not the mirrored device. When you write to the mirrored device, lvl1 in this case, data is mirrored so there is no failure at all. So I think you have to dd to either /dev/sda3 or /dev/sdb3.

How will LVM distinguish between a valid and invalid copy in that case?

Are you sure that on reads, LVM will return data from the "good" copy, not the one you just overwrote with "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb seek=xxx bs=1M count=10"?
