Description Ean J. Price 2005-02-27 11:43:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
rc.sysinit does not run vgscan after mdadm RAID initialization.  It does scan after raidtools initialization but raidtools is not present in RHEL4.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a RAID device and an /etc/mdadm.conf file
2.Mark the RAID device as a physical volume and create a volume group
3.Add an entry to /etc/fstab
4.Reboot and enjoy the sulogin goodness.

Actual Results:  Sulogin of doom when rc.sysinit got to the fsck.

Expected Results:  The VG should have started and then the fsck would not have errored out.

Additional info:

Here is the patch:
