Description David Kewley 2005-05-26 21:29:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux; en_US) KHTML/3.4.0 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
rc.sysinit does things in this order:  
echo "raidautorun /dev/md0" | nash --quiet  
# LVM2 initialization  
# LVM initialization  
if [ -f /etc/mdadm.conf ]; then  
    /sbin/mdadm -A -s  
if [ -f /etc/raidtab ]; then  
    ... start up raid  
    # LVM2 initialization, take 2 
    # LVM initialization, take 2 (it could be on top of RAID) 
The result is that LVM2 logical volumes (or LVM I presume) that are on top of 
mdadm-managed raid volumes do not get initialized.  My solution so far is to 
re-run the LVM2 initialization in rc.local.  I think it should instead be done 
in rc.sysinit. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a LVM2 logical volume (&PV,VG) on top of a mdadm-managed raid device 
2. reboot 

Actual Results:  The new logical volume is not initialized -- it does not appear in /dev. 

Expected Results:  The new logical volume should be usable immediately after boot -- it should be 
initialized during the boot process, which makes it shows up in /dev.
