Description Shyam kumar Iyer 2007-03-13 08:27:10 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/lvm/.cache file contains /dev/cdrom and other readonly devices. Because 
of this lvdisplay throws up errors on the console and dmesg. The errors seen 
are like this -
"ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: packet command error:  status=0x51 { AbortedCommand SeekComplete Error }
hda: packet command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Perform CD install.
2.Issue lvscan command or lvdisplay command.

 Actual results:
Read only errors and other errors mentioned in the described in the 
description are observed in the dmesg.

Expected results:
/etc/lvm/.cache should not contain devices like /dev/cdrom.

Additional info:
On issuing vgscan the cache file gets regenerated and does not contain 
the /dev/cdrom devices. This solves the issue.

Comment 1 Shyam kumar Iyer 2007-03-16 10:30:35 UTC
Please replicate the documentation for rhel5 also as mentioned in this 
knowledgebase article.

Comment 3 Charles Rose 2007-06-07 04:48:44 UTC
A document fix as mentioned in Comment #1 would suffice to close this issue.

Comment 4 Charles Rose 2007-08-02 13:33:31 UTC
Larry, Please document this issue in a kbase article.

Comment 5 Larry Troan 2007-08-29 17:56:55 UTC
Per comment #1, this is already a KBase article:

I've requested that the article include RHEL5 (rather than just RHEL4).

Comment 6 John Feeney 2007-11-01 21:10:14 UTC
It looks to me as though the RHEL4 kbase article was been updated to reference
RHEL5, too. (Thanks Larry and Gary.) I would ask Dell to make sure it meets
their expectations and if so, we can close this one out. 

Comment 7 Shyam kumar Iyer 2007-11-02 12:14:47 UTC
Yes, the kbase satisfies the expectations.

Comment 8 John Feeney 2007-11-02 14:32:21 UTC
Okay, closing it.
