Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 180281
Mirror synchronization progress bar missing
Last modified: 2009-04-16 19:12:19 EDT
Description of problem:
As stated in bz 159457, a progress bar is supposed to show up somewhere
after a mirror is created to show the progress of the mirror synchronization.
I do not see a progress bar anywhere.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create mirror volume
2. Run `lvs` on the command line to verify synchronization
3. Look for progress bar in system-config-lvm
No progress bar found
A progress bar should be visible when viewing the mirror.
Fixed in 1.0.14
The GUI becomes unusable after a mirror create because the lvcreate command
waits for the mirror to sync before returning, bz 195392. The "Creating Logical
Volume" progress bar bounced back and forth so the GUI itself is not "hung," but
it isn't usable until the lvcreate command completes, which can take a very long
lvcreate doesn't exit even when the mirror sync completes.
It used to be that lvcreate would return immediately, and sync'ing would
continue in the background.
This is verified to work w/ lvm2-2.02.06-4.0.RHEL4
