Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install RH6 snapshot 6
Install Test kit v7 version 7-1.2-3
Ran Storage test and failed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH6 snapshot 6
2. Install Test kit v7 version 7-1.2-3

Test version: v7-1.2.3
I had tried two storage configurations test.
- One, leave all LVM partition as default and ran the test --- fail
- Second delete all LVM partition and create boot, swap, and root partitions
and ran the test ----fail

This test also fail inside the KVM.
Additional info from BZ#612323:
storage.py (devSize()) uses the following command to figure out the device
file -L /dev/sdc |sed -r 's|.*special .([0-9]+)/([0-9]+).|\\1 \\2|'
...but "file -L" does not print the major/minor number under RHEL6
$ file -L /dev/sdc
/dev/sdc: block special
...whereas earlier distributions would print:
$ file /dev/sdc
/dev/sdc: block special (8/32)
storage.py needs to find a different way to find out storage device sizes.

I checked v7 1.2-14 and the bug from comment #6 seems to be still in there.

Seems to be solved in 1.2-16.

The storage test passed with v7-1.2-16 (alpha 4) on RHEL6 snap10.
The test failed on RH6 x64 snapshot 11 and v7-1.2-17 test kit. The swap partition is 14GB before the test, but after test swap partition is 0. Swap partitions is still 0 after reboot the system.
*** Raw I/O testing passed.
swap device has no label.
restoring swap device /dev/dm-1 ...
Error: could not restore swap
"mkswap /dev/dm-1" has output on stderr
Error: restore swap error !
...finished running ./storage.py, exit code=1

This looks like bug 621070 - resolved in R18. Could you try R18 please?
Tested r18, r20 in a Snapshot7 machine, both errors in #c3 and #c15 have disappeared. If qcui confirms that she doesn't trigger the bug in new v7 versions too, the bug can be moved to `VERIFIED'.

rhel6-snapshot-7 with v7 version r18 & r20
Verified it on ppc64,s390x,x86_64 with v7-1.2-21.el6.
