Fedora Update Notification
2013-12-20 00:30:16

Name        : lvm2
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 2.02.103
Release     : 5.fc20
URL         : http://sources.redhat.com/lvm2
Summary     : Userland logical volume management tools
Description :
LVM2 includes all of the support for handling read/write operations on
physical volumes (hard disks, RAID-Systems, magneto optical, etc.,
multiple devices (MD), see mdadd(8) or even loop devices, see
losetup(8)), creating volume groups (kind of virtual disks) from one
or more physical volumes and creating one or more logical volumes
(kind of logical partitions) in volume groups.

Update Information:

This update fixes a bug in lvm2-pvscan@<major>:<minor>.service and global_filter processing. The lvm2-pvscan service called the pvscan improperly with absolute path to /dev/block/<major>:<minor> which then required exact matching lines in global_filter for the device to be accepted or rejected. This update fixes this in a way that the absolute path is not used for the lvm2-pvscan service and the device is referenced solely by its major and minor pair. This means that for the global_filter to match the device, we can pick any of the device name aliases for the filter line to be applied.

This bug may have caused the PVs to be incorrectly ignored while they were supposed to be visible and the LVM volumes may have ended up inactive while they were supposed to be activated.

* Wed Dec 18 2013 Peter Rajnoha <prajnoha at redhat.com> - 2.02.103-5
- Use major:minor in lvm2-pvscan at .service for proper global_filter application.
* Wed Dec 11 2013 Peter Rajnoha <prajnoha at redhat.com> - 2.02.103-4
- Fix SYSTEMD_READY assignment for foreign devs in lvmetad rules.

  [ 1 ] Bug #1044474 - The global_filter is not properly applied for lvm2-pvscan at .service - only major:minor pair should be used, not device path for the service's "pvscan --cache -aay" call

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update lvm2' at the command line.
