Comment 1 Dave Wysochanski 2007-03-12 13:10:03 EDT
Since no one has claimed this one, and I have been looking at recovery of
metadata and the code paths are similar, I'll take this for now.

Moving to rhel5.

Looks to my like Petr's domain for now.
Comment 6 Petr Rockai 2010-11-30 18:00:32 EST
It may be my domain, but it would be useful to know what is vgck supposed to do. It does what the manpage says it does, but I agree it's not entirely useful since all other vg-related commands run the same checks anyway. So what is the meaning of this bug?

I can see 3 possible coures of action:
1) Get a clear picture of what vgck should do, retitle and repurpose this bug to that end.
2) Decide that vgck is redundant and remove it (although it's not *entirely* redundant anymore, I think it "fails" (gives error code) in more cases than vgs).
3) Do nothing and close this BZ as NOTABUG.

I am setting this to needinfo for now, in the hope of going with option 1 (as I don't have any ideas myself). If no-one comes up with anything, I'll fall back to option 3.

Thank you for submitting this issue for consideration. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 has reached the end of Production 1 Phase of its Life Cycle.  Red Hat does not plan to incorporate the suggested capability in a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 minor release. If you would like Red  Hat to re-consider this feature request and the requested functionality is not currently in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, please re-open the request via appropriate support channels and provide additional supporting details about the importance of this issue.
