Description Perry Myers 2010-12-09 16:29:14 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #661888 +++

Description of problem:
XFS works as a valid filesystem in the fs resource agent, but we need to include XFS testing in the context of RHEL HA Add On to fully support it.  The existing test matrix that covers ext2/3/4 just needs to be expanded to include tests of XFS as well

Where is the xfsprogs package in RHEL 5.7?  I don't see them in the regular trees.
Comment 6 Perry Myers 2011-06-23 10:42:42 EDT
No idea... probably better to ask someone from the filesystems team?  Ric, can you assist?
Comment 7 Ric Wheeler 2011-06-23 11:05:58 EDT
xfsprogs lives in a separate channel, adding the developers on to this (I don't recall how you get the official package)
Comment 8 Dean Jansa 2011-06-23 11:17:33 EDT
Sayan -- what are the channels we need to pull in xfsprogs to test this?
Comment 9 Sayan Saha 2011-06-23 11:28:23 EDT
It is under the SFS (Scalable File System) child channel under the RHEL 5 base channel.
Comment 10 Nate Straz 2011-06-28 10:49:05 EDT
I ran through our rgmanager tests with XFS and did not hit any new issues.
