Description Jeremy Katz 2004-08-23 17:05:32 EDT
If I do pvcreate on a device that used to be part of a RAID array, the
md signature doesn't get wiped from the disk.  

This is a bit less than ideal.

pvcreate updated in CVS to do this.

But if --uuid or --restorefile is specified without -y, it asks the
question: these options are normally used when recovering metadata
from a backup and in cases like that you might well want the md
superblock left intact.

After running an md command, always run vgscan before running any
other LVM command.

Included in 2.00.26 source.
