Description Corey Marthaler 2005-07-08 16:55:17 EDT
Description of problem:
If I try and grab exclusive "ownership" of a vg for a machine, but that vg is
already in use or exclusive somewhere else, I get an error saying:
"Error locking on node <hostname>: Resource temporarily unavailable".
It should say something like, "VG is already activated else where, please
deactivate if you want to have exclusive access".
