[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW tools/lvcreate.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	jbrassow sourceware org	2011-09-22 15:36:21

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	tools          : lvcreate.c 

Log message:
	Disallow the creation of mirrors (mirror or raid1 segtype) with only one leg.
	
	If you specify the segment type (e.g. --type mirror) and the mirrors argument
	as zero, it would result in a mirrored LV with only one image.  While the device
	may be valid in theory, it should not be allowed in practice.  It also makes it
	difficult on the conversion tools, since they react badly to single-image
	mirrors.
