Description Alexandre Oliva 2003-12-14 12:43:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031202

Description of problem:
When using RAID physical volumes, one has to set up /etc/lvm/lvm.conf
such that vgscan skips the component partitions of the raid devices. 
If the root filesystem is a LV of such a VG, lvm.conf must be copied
to initrd.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up the root filesystem in a volume group containing raid devices
2.Try to boot kernel 2.6 with lvm2

Actual Results:  vgscan in initrd fails because of ``duplicate�� entries.

Expected Results:  Ideally, they'd be skipped automatically by lvm2,
but it doesn't take care of it by itself, relying on lvm.conf instead.
 So we have to set up lvm.conf and copy it to the initrd filesystem.
