lvreduce does not honor --test with --resizefs
Last modified: 2009-07-19 06:32:07 EDT
lvreduce --test --resizefs -L4G foo/bar
Will run both of these:
fsadm check /dev/foo/bar
fsadm resize /dev/foo/bar 4194304
Note that fsadm has an option for --dry-run but it isn't used!
Thanks for spotting and reporting this!
Normally --test is safe because it prevents the program from issuing any writes.
We need to add some new protection for fork/exec.
Default behaviour for exec_cmd() in test mode should be to print the command but not actually execute it.
Then some exceptions can be made to that, such as if the command is fsadm, add '--dry-run', and MODPROBE_CMD is probably OK too. (The "fsadm" hard-coding should be removed too and replaced with a similar FSADM_CMD.)
support for --dry-run added by commit:
