Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2007

Applies to:

Linux Kernel - Version: 2.6

Symptoms

Sequence of actions to reproduce:

1. install EL4U4 on the system configured with Qlogic HBA cards
2. create the logical volume ,e.g. vg1, on the attached disks
3. create ext3 filesystem on vg1 and mount it on. So far so good.
4. reboot the machine
5. when system boot up, 'vgscan' shows the logical volume vg1 is 'inactive'. Issuing 'vgchange -ay' manually activates the logical volume vg1 and it can be mounted without any problem.
