Description Daniel W. Ottey 2005-03-28 11:04:35 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda reports an error when attempting to remove logical volumes, and then
reboots the system.

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

How reproducible:
I had a disk which previously contained an LVM logicial volume.  I
re-initialized the disk using the LSI320 Megaraid utility.  But the Red Hat
installer still saw the old LV group.  I used Disk Druid in the installer to
delete the old partitions and create new ones.  When the installer attempted to
perform the LV removals, I received this error.  Then the system rebooted.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Peter - this is just another instance of this problem, which I know you've seen
a bunch of times and know how to fix by hand at least.

  Volume group VolGroup00 metadata is inconsistent
  Volume group for uuid not found:
  Unable to deactivate logical volume "LogVol00"
  Device '/dev/sda2' has been left open.
  Inconsistent metadata copies found - updating to use version 4

Are you still having this problem with RHEL 4.7?
