Description Olle Liljenzin 2006-03-07 15:10:55 UTC
Description of problem:
Old archive files are not removed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lvm2-2.01.14-2.0.RHEL4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lvcreate -L 10M -n test /dev/vg0
2. lvremove /dev/vg0/test
3. repeat a number of times
  
Actual results:
The directory /etc/lvm/archive gets filled up with archive files

Expected results:
Old archive files should be removed, with respect to the parameters 'retain_min'
and 'retain_days' in /etc/lvm.conf

Additional info:
The clean up works in FC4. In both cases with lvm.conf unmodified.
