Fixed In Version: lvm2-2.02.98-2.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: A missing dependency on the device-mapper-persistent-data package caused problems and thin pool devices were not being monitored on activation. Consequence: Unmonitored pools cannot grow in size, when they overfill the configured threshold. Fix: Code path for enabling monitoring of thin pool has been fixed and the missing package dependency added. Result: When monitoring for thin pool is configured, dmeventd is running and watching for pool overfill.
