Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499251
fail to detect LVs
Last modified: 2009-05-14 18:32:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to detect pre-existing logical volumes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot.iso, askmethod, use http://download.fedora.etc
2. select custom partitioning
Only non-PV partitions shown and thus no VG/LVs
Please attach /tmp/storage.log to this bug report. I'm definitely not seeing this behavior here.

storage log from rawhide anaconda 220.127.116.11
After see that the Lvs were not detected and after saving storage.log, did a lvscan on tty-2 and saw all LVs. Attaching as next attachment.
Noticed that "Finding storage devices" routine did not request encrypted LV partitions' pass phrases and - subjectively - ran in much less time that previous working tests. Then reran install with F11 x86_64 Preview dvd which does find the LVs. That storage.log will be attached as the third attachment.

Please note that attachment 342555 [details] should read:

(NOT .47) sorry for the clumsiness.
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Thanks for the bug report.
Could not definitely test due to 499662, but during storage detection the encrypted LVs were seen. Just couldn't get to the actual storage layout for custom partitioning.
with anaconda .52 LVs now seen in custom partitioning.
However, could not get past bz 499828, will test more without mounting any luks LVs or parititions.
Re-ran without mounting any luks LVs and installed ok.
