Description Derek Anderson 2004-07-27 16:04:02 EDT
Description of problem:
It is my understanding that this code line will no longer work with
pool.  If this is correct the -P option should be removed from the
gfs_mkfs command.  It does the "fixme!" dance.

[root@link-11 data1]# gfs_mkfs -t MILTON:data2 -j 3 -p lock_dlm -P
gfs_mkfs: fixme!

[root@link-11 data1]# gfs_mkfs -h

gfs_mkfs [options] <device>


  -b <bytes>       Filesystem block size
  -D               Enable debugging code
  -h               Print this help, then exit
  -J <MB>          Size of journals
  -j <num>         Number of journals
  -O               Don't ask for confirmation
  -P               Try to get FS layout from Pool
  -p <name>        Name of the locking protocol
  -q               Don't print anything
  -r <MB>          Resource Group Size
  -s <blocks>      Journal segment size
  -t <name>        Name of the lock table
  -V               Print program version information, then exit

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

Comment 1 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2004-07-27 16:34:17 EDT
does the same thing occur when you use a pool device as the -P option
Comment 2 Ken Preslan 2005-01-04 20:54:41 EST
Get rid of -P option.  It should be replace with CLVM labeling later.
Comment 3 Derek Anderson 2005-01-10 12:39:22 EST
Verified.  She's gone.

# gfs_mkfs -V
gfs_mkfs 6.1-pre8
