Description Eryu Guan 2011-08-16 06:23:02 UTC
Seems xfsprogs-3.1.1-6.el6 also has this problem. Clone for rhel6

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #714934 +++

Description of problem:
xfstests 253 will never complete, from the test description:
This test was created to verify fixes for problems where metadump
would never complete due to an inability to find a suitable
obfuscated name to use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa | grep xfsprogs


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install xfstests
2. check 253
Actual results:
Test will never complete

Expected results:
Test pass

Additional info:
I think this should be the xfsprogs component, if a kernel fix is needed, please correct me.

--- Additional comment from esandeen@redhat.com on 2011-06-21 11:07:05 EDT ---

xfsprogs is the correct component, there are upstream metadump fixes which we don't have in rhel5 and this test exercises them explicitly.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-10-07 16:12:50 UTC
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2011-10-12 17:31:22 UTC
This is an expected failure which is fixed upstream, we will need the series starting at

56281ed43abe95e96e45d2287fd0b965b7d4d2b8 xfsprogs: metadump: some names aren't all that special

as a backport, to fix it.
