Description Corey Marthaler 2006-01-18 16:44:18 EST
Description of problem:
I saw some closed bugs similar to this (having the same messages) for mkinitrd
and init, but I only needed to attempt snapshot creations inorder to see the
messages this time.

[root@link-08 bin]# lvcreate -s /dev/snapper/origin  -L 50M
File descriptor 3 left open
File descriptor 4 left open
  Rounding up size to full physical extent 52.00 MB
  Logical volume "lvol2" created

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@link-08 bin]# rpm -q lvm2
[root@link-08 bin]# rpm -q lvm2-cluster

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Alasdair Kergon 2006-01-19 12:59:23 EST
Run 'lsof' against your shell process and see where those file descriptors 3 and
4 are pointing.
Comment 2 Corey Marthaler 2006-03-08 11:53:36 EST
This was a legitimate bug. If it is just going to be closed since I haven't been
able to reproduce it, close it WORKSFORME, not NOTABUG.
Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2006-03-08 12:08:01 EST
It's not a bug in lvm2 - the problem lies elsewhere.  The warning message tells
you that something else run by a previous process forgot to close some file
desciptors and they got inherited by lvm2.  For WORKSFORME you'd need to track
down what didn't close its file descriptors and change the component to that
from lvm2.
