Description Jeremiah Johnson 2007-05-08 00:42:42 UTC
RHN support asks for /etc/lvm, why not just include it in sysreport?

it's already fixed in CVS

Comment 9 Bryn M. Reeves 2007-11-13 10:18:04 UTC
Sysreport is deprecated in RHEL-5.1. Sosreport already includes support for
taking an lvm dump of a system using the upstream "lvmdump" script. This is a
*much* better format to have this information in than a bare tar archive of
/etc/lvm and the script has been in all RHEL releases since RHEL-4.5.

Support should be asking people to provide either an sosreport archive or an
lvmdump for problems involving lvm or the device-mapper.
