lvm lvs hangs - suspect clvmd to be the cause
Last modified: 2013-02-28 23:06:49 EST
Description of problem:
Running RHEL-5.2 with lvm2-2.02.32-1.el5 and lvm2-cluster-2.02.32-1.el5
Installing a new kernel hangs for ever.
Investigation shows that mkinitrd is startet but never succeeds.
pstree shows that the command lvm.static lvs ... is the cause.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Downgrading to lvm2-2.02.26-3.el5 and lvm2-cluster-2.02.26-1.el5 does not yet
fix the problem. But killing (kill -9 clvmd) and starting clvmd anew will make
it go away.
There's a distinct possibility that this is the same as bz #435341
Ok, fix from bug 435341 should go to RHEL5.2 too.
I'll use this BZ as clone for adding the patch mentioned in
