Comment 3 RHEL Program Management 2010-07-15 14:30:03 UTC
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

I think this is solved by latest patches which fixes clvmd deadlock.

Is this issue still present with 6.0.z packages? If so can you paste clvmd debuglog?

Comment 7 Milan Broz 2011-01-19 23:16:30 UTC
In needinfo for debuglog for 2 months, closing that,

The problem is probably fixed but it makes no sense to add it to errata without identifying exact problem.

Please reaopen if you hit this again with RHEL6.1 / 6.0.z binaries, thanks.
