Description of problem:
currently lvcreate only supports to specify the metadata disk size when creating thin pool.
But it should also support to specify the physical disk used for metadata disk.

dmsetup can support to do this but cannot see it in lvcreate.

Comment 3 Peter Rajnoha 2013-04-26 09:47:26 EDT
Fedora 17 is nearing its 'End of Life' in approx. two months from now, I don't expect any new updates for F17. This is fixed in F18 version of LVM2.
