Description Corey Marthaler 2012-09-26 17:01:57 EDT
Description of problem:
This is basically bug 858874, but with a mirror volume being converted instead of a linear volume. I'm not even sure if this is or is not supported, but bug 855171 appears to imply that it's not.


[root@taft-04 ~]# lvcreate -m 1 -n mirror -L 100M TEST
  Logical volume "mirror" created

  Logical volume mirror is not a thin pool.
