Unable to remove logical and physical volume
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:14:27 EST
Description of problem:
After setting up a simple physical and logical volume i tried to
remove the logical volume and then afterwards the physical one.
I added a physical volume alled A and then added a logical volume
In then managed to remove the logical volume B, but the logical view
for A still was there despite the fact that the logical volume B had
When i now tried to remove either the logical view or the physical
volume a dialog with an error pops up.
If i try to remove the logical view the message is this:
lvremove command failed. Command attempted: "/usr/sbin/lvremove
And when i try to remove the complete physical volume i don't get an
error but nothing happens. But when i try to remove the partition from
the physical volume A i get this error:
vgreduce command failed. Command attempted: "/usr/sbin/vgreduce A
So all in call, i was only able to remove the logical volume B. I can
then add the logical volume B again and remove that, but the effect
stays the same.
If i invoke "lvm vgremove" from the commandline it works nicely and
when i then restart the tool i get a clean and unused partition
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create physical and logical volumes
2. Remove logical volume
3. Try to remove logical view or physical volume
Removal doesn't work or error dialogs pop up.
Removal of logical and physical volumes should work without errors.
This ticket describes two issues:
1) The selection tree was not being updated after an item was deleted
2) PV remove was not giving proper diagnostic messages
Both have been addressed in 0.9.7-1.0
