Bug Fix Advisory lvm2 bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0510-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-07-08
Last updated on: 2010-07-08
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated lvm2 packages that fix various bugs are now available.

The lvm2 packages contain support for Logical Volume Management (LVM).

These updated lvm2 packages include fixes for the following bugs:

* the command lvchange --refresh used to cause unexpected partial mapping if
some PVs were missing. lvchange --refresh requires a partial flag for missing
PVs. This problem is resolved and lvchange --refresh recognizes now --partial.
(BZ#601078)

* the lvm command used to fail when the log file specified in lvm.conf was not
available. This problem is now resolved and the commands simply log the error
and continue as if there was no log file specified at all. (BZ#601079)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these
issues.
