Last updated on: 2007-11-07
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


Updated lvm2-cluster packages that include various bug fixes are now

The lvm2-cluster packages contain support for logical volume management in
a clustered environment.

This update ensures that the bugs fixed by lvm2 advisory RHBA-2007:0516 and
device-mapper advisory RHBA-2007:0514 are also fixed in a clustered

Additionally, this update:

* fixes several bugs in 'clvmd' that can cause the daemon to hang or crash.

* fixes some cases where a locking bug allowed metadata to be read
incorrectly whilst it was being changed.

* displays more detailed error messages in many cases and suppresses a few
unnecessary ones.

* adds debugging messages to 'clvmd' if invoked with '-d'.

* adds a startup timeout command line option '-T' to 'clvmd'.

* updates 'clvmd' to handle quorum devices properly.

* now flags 'nolocking' as clustered so 'clvmd' startup sees clustered LVs.

All users of lvm2-cluster should upgrade to these updated packages, which
include these bug fixes.
