Fixed In Version: ovirt-node-2.5.0-6.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, running a reinstallation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor failed with "No volume groups found" because the previously created Host VG was still present in the system. This was due to the filesystem layout change in the dracut module which did not take into account that the RHEL6 dracut module was still using the old filesytem layout. This patch adds backward compatability for dracut in RHEL6 by adding the required files.

Description Fabian Deutsch 2012-10-12 04:02:10 EDT
Description of problem:
The dracut module (for cleaning up HostVG etc) isn't working properly.
Comment 3 Fabian Deutsch 2012-10-12 05:05:19 EDT
This lead to problems when running a reinstall, as the previosuly created HostVG wouldn't be removed
Comment 8 Mike Burns 2012-10-14 20:50:18 EDT
patch adds bashisms to ovirt-cleanup.sh which is /bin/sh.
Comment 11 haiyang,dong 2012-10-29 01:34:25 EDT
Test version:

1. Install RHEVH
2. Boot again same RHEVH ISO
3. Select "Reinstall" option
4. When  the installer comes up and offers to "Install Hypervisor 6.4-20121015.1.el6" press F2, drop to shell,
5. run: vgs - "No volume groups found" is displayed
[root@localhost /]#vgs
No volume groups found

so this bug has been fixed.
