Description Travis Tiedemann 2006-02-23 22:10:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Union Pacific Corporate Image; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
We have a three node cluster running RHEL 4 U2 and GFS 6.1.  The servers are G4 Proliant DL380s running dual Emulex 9802 HBAs and mpio.  They are connecting via McData switches to an older Symmetrix box.  

When the systems boot, I see the following error:

Setting up logical volume management: unable to open external locking library liblvm2clusterlock.so
  Locking inactive: ignoring clustered volume group vgtest
  6 logical volumes in volume group "Volume00" now active

This appears to come from the stanza in rc.sysinit which begins:

# LVM2 initialization

Later on, when the cluster suite/GFS scripts run, the GFS filesystem is mounted just fine.  I think this is just a cosmetic/timing issue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install gfs
2. boot system

Actual Results:  the abovementioned error, but everything mounts fine.

Expected Results:  no error

Did you retype that?  My version has 'Logical Volume Management' capitalised.

I suppose lvm.static (or --ignorelockingfailure) should suppress the 'unable to
open' error message.

Changed upstream.
