Bug Fix Advisory lvm2-cluster bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0432-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-05-21
Last updated on: 2010-05-21
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


Updated lvm2-cluster packages that fix various bugs are now available.

The lvm2-cluster packages contain support for Logical Volume Management (LVM) in
a clustered environment.

This update ensures that the bugs fixed by the lvm2 advisory are also fixed in a
clustered environment, namely these bugs:

* avoids repeated full device scans if using internally-cached VG metadata
(which happens on systems with a missing device in a Volume Group). (BZ#584705)

* fixes unexpected symbolic link removal if device is still active after
deactivation failure. (BZ#580831)

This update also applies the following clustered lvm only bug fixes:

* fixes thread race which can happen if clvmd is under high load and leads to
clvmd hangs. (BZ#584706)

* fixes clvmd init script info to properly shutdown Logical Volumes if GFS is
used on them. (BZ#591524)

* fixes vgscan to refresh device cache if cluster locking is used and device
filter in lvm.conf is changed. (BZ#592220)

Users of lvm2-cluster are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues.


Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
