[lvm-devel] LVM2 man/vgsplit.8.in tools/vgsplit.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	wysochanski sourceware org	2009-09-02 21:27:22

Modified files:
	man            : vgsplit.8.in 
	tools          : vgsplit.c 

Log message:
	Refactor vgsplit - reorder _vgsplit_from and _vgsplit_to based on flag.
	
	Slight functional change.  If we open the destination first, we cannot
	know the 'fmt'.  In this case we use the default metadata type unless
	the user has specified -M on the cmdline.  If not, in most cases this
	is fine since we use the LVM2 default metadata type.  However, if the
	user is specifying a non-default metadata type (e.g. lvm1) and the order
	of the names is such that we have to open the destination (vg_to) first,
	we have a problem.  So in this case, we require the use of -M and vgsplit
	will fail with an error if not.  I've updated the man page to recommend
	the usage of -M in this case.
