Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1026468
blivet shows existing LVs as not taking up any space in the VG
Last modified: 2014-06-18 00:45:07 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1026466 +++
Description of problem:
Existing LVM configurations detected by blivet show existing VGs as having their full capacity available in spite of any existing LVs. This is due to a regression introduced when fixing bug 1013800.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create an anaconda automatic partitioning layout (write it to disk)
2. reboot into the installer using the same disk(s)
3. in the custom storage spoke, create a new LV
A new LV will be added with up to the full size of the VG even though the VG is already full.
Creation of a new LV should fail due to the disk(s) and VG being full.

I have a patch for this and have verified that it fixes this problem.
To be clear, this bug circumvents all checking done by the installer related to accounting for free space within a preexisting VG. That means, for example, that a user would be allowed to add a 100GB LV to an existing 200GB VG that has no free space.
Reproduced with python-blivet-0.18.9-1.el7, verified with python-blivet-0.18.11-1.el7
