Re: [linux-lvm] metadata problems while testing lvm2 git with dm_thin_pool



Hi Stefan,

I had a similar issue some time ago.

Which vgcreate commands did you use?

The last device in the list is used for the meta data. If you don't give
it a further device for the metadata then LVM puts the metadata onto the
same device like the data resulting in your issue.

Do it like this:

vgcreate thinvg /dev/sda /dev/sdb
lvcreate -L 10G -T thinvg/pool1
lvcreate -V 100G -T thinvg/pool1 -n disk1

The data is put on /dev/sda and the metadata is put on /dev/sdb. You can
only use the size of /dev/sda for the data. /dev/sdb shouldn't be bigger
than 16 GiB or your wasting disk space. You can also use a regular 16
GiB LV as PV and put it as metadata device into the VG.

Looks like this:
pvcreate /dev/sdb
vgcreate meta /dev/sdb
lvcreate -L 16G meta -n meta1
vgcreate thinvg /dev/sda /dev/mapper/meta-meta1
lvcreate -L 10G -T thinvg/pool1
lvcreate -V 100G -T thinvg/pool1 -n disk1

Cheers,
Sebastian
