Bug Fix Advisory lvm2-cluster bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0024-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


Updated lvm2-cluster packages that fix one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

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

This update fixes the following bug:

* If a physical volume (PV) presented in a volume group (VG) contained only
metadata and no physical extents (PE), an attempt to write the volume group's
metadata by running the "vgcfgrestore" command was not successful. Running the
command failed with the "Floating point exception" error message, which was
caused by a "division by zero" error. This bug has been fixed and lvm2-cluster
now works correctly in such a case. (BZ#824813)

All users of lvm2-cluster are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.


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
