[lvm-devel] example [was Re: thinpool-block-device exists twice after renaming]



Here an example for recreating the situation:


asterix:lvm2# lvcreate --name renametest -V 100M -T myvg/mythinpool
  Logical volume "renametest" created
asterix:lvm2# lvrename /dev/myvg/renametest renametest2
  Renamed "renametest" to "renametest2" in volume group "myvg"
  Unable to rename device node from 'myvg-renametest' to 'dmivg-renametest2'
asterix:lvm2# ls -l /dev/myvg/renametest2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Aug 27 15:24 /dev/myvg/renametest2 ->
/dev/mapper/dmivg-renametest2
asterix:lvm2# ls -l /dev/mapper/myvg-renametest2
brw------- 1 root root 252, 26 Aug 27 15:24 /dev/mapper/myvg-renametest2
asterix:lvm2# ls -l /dev/dm-26
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 252, 26 Aug 27 15:24 /dev/dm-26

Now this device exist as /dev/dm-26 _and_ as /dev/mapper/myvg-renametest2

Tfh!
