Description Marian Csontos 2013-01-24 05:57:34 EST
lvmdump does not handle symbolic links nor modified backup_dir or archive_dir.

This makes sense on systems with read-only /etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create /etc/lvm as a symbolic link
2. modify lvm.conf so backup_dir/archive_dir points to non-default location
3. run lvmdump -ma
Actual results:
- link is archived not the content
- backup/archive dir are not archived

Expected results:
- content of /etc/lvm/ should be archived
- backup/archive dir should be archived
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 12:01:27 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

Symbolic links are now followed + a directory listing is included (just for sure to see which files/dirs were symlinks originally):
