Description Corey Marthaler 2007-09-28 19:07:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Without lockgulm around in rhel5 anymore, it seems silly to have to enter a lock
protocol everytime I mkfs a new gfs filesystem.

From the man page:
"LockProtoName is the name of the  locking  protocol to use.  The locking
protocol should be lock_dlm for a clustered file system..."

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

Comment 4 Abhijith Das 2007-10-17 20:17:52 UTC
committed fix to cvs HEAD and RHEL5 to make lock_dlm the default lock protocol
in mkfs.gfs and mkfs.gfs2.

Comment 6 Corey Marthaler 2007-12-19 22:05:48 UTC
fixed verified in gfs-utils-0.1.15-1.el5.
