Description Milan Broz 2008-06-26 09:08:48 EDT
pvchange incorrectly handles PVs without metadata areas,
"allocatable" flag should changed in metadata (located on other PVs)

# pvs -o +mda_count /dev/sd[bc]1
  PV         VG      Fmt  Attr PSize   PFree   #PMda
  /dev/sdb1  vg_test lvm2 a-   200.00M 200.00M     1
  /dev/sdc1  vg_test lvm2 a-   200.00M 200.00M     0

# pvchange -x n /dev/sdb1
  Physical volume "/dev/sdb1" changed
  1 physical volume changed / 0 physical volumes not changed

# pvchange -x n /dev/sdc1
  Allocatability not supported by orphan lvm2 format PV /dev/sdc1
  0 physical volumes changed / 1 physical volume not changed

# rpm -q lvm2
