Description David Juran 2008-05-23 04:56:30 EDT
Description of problem:
In my two-node cluster, after updating to lvm2-cluster-2.02.32-4.el5, clmvd was
hanging which caused lvm commands (e.g. vgdisplay)to either hang or fail. 

Killing clvmd (in one case kill -9 was needed) and restarting it solved the
problem but since this update was part of the RHEL5.2 update there where a lot
of other rpm:s being updated at the same time. And one of them was the kernel
which in it's postinstall script (via mkinitrd) runs 'lvm.static vgdisplay'.
Which hangs. And a huge rpm transaction that is hanging is a scary scary thing
to behold...

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.1
2. Configure a cluster with clustered VG(s)
2. yum upgrade lvm2-cluster
3. vgdisplay

It looks to me that the patch for bz#435491 comment 50 is not included in RHEL5
