Description Corey Marthaler 2005-08-11 21:27:06 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm not sure what "-j" does, but it says I can use it:

lvm> lvchange
  One or more of -a, -C, -j, -m, -M, -p, -r, --refresh, --alloc, --addtag or
--deltag required

lvm> lvchange -h
  lvchange: Change the attributes of logical volume(s)

        [-A|--autobackup y|n]
        [-a|--available [e|l]y|n]
        [--addtag Tag]
        [--alloc AllocationPolicy]
        [-C|--contiguous y|n]
        [--deltag Tag]
        [-M|--persistent y|n] [--major major] [--minor minor]
        [-p|--permission r|rw]
        [-r|--readahead ReadAheadSectors]
        LogicalVolume[Path] [LogicalVolume[Path]...]

lvm> lvchange -j /dev/gfs/testvol
  Invalid argument /dev/gfs/testvol
  Error during parsing of command line.
lvm> lvchange -jy /dev/gfs/testvol
  Invalid argument y
  Error during parsing of command line.
lvm> lvchange -j 1 /dev/gfs/testvol
  --major and --minor require -My

Comment 1 Milan Broz 2006-09-04 15:19:14 UTC
Option -j is shortcut for --major. 
Not implemented in lvm2 yet.
Closing this as duplicate of feature request for implementing LVM2 major number
