Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 336561
gfs2_tool accepts jdata flag; man page says no
Last modified: 2010-01-11 22:40:00 EST
Description of problem:
The man page for the gfs2_tool command notes that the jdata and inherit_jdata
flags are now set with chattr. Just as described, the gfs2_tool setflag
command no longer accepts the inherit_jdata option. However, it does
accept the jdata option, and even seems to set the jdata flag just fine.
It seems as though the jdata flag should no longer be valid at all for the
gfs2_tool setflag command, just as the man page says.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Execute gfs2_tool setflag jdata on a file. This will yield no error message.
Execute lsattr on that file. This will show that the flag has been set.
[root@dash-01 mygfs2fs]# gfs2_tool setflag jdata /mygfs2fs/data
[root@dash-01 mygfs2fs]# lsattr data
Steps to Reproduce:
I've got a replacement man page that explains this better.
