Fedora Update Notification
2013-07-26 21:40:01

Name        : lvm2
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 2.02.98
Release     : 10.fc19
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 which caused the 'devices/global_filter' lvm.conf setting to be ignored on 'pvscan --cache <device>' call that is responsible for updating the LVM metadata daemon (lvmetad). When lvmetad is used (global/use_lvmetad=1), the 'pvscan --cache <device>' is called automatically for each relevant udev event and as a consequence this bug caused the lvmetad to keep information about devices that should have been filtered. Such information was provided to LVM commands then, hence bypassing the global_filter. The update also fixes a segfault on incorrectly specified global_filter.

This update also changes severity of messages coming from lvm2-activation-generator systemd generator that is responsible for activating the LVM volumes if lvmetad is not used. Now, LOG_ERR syslog severity is issued only if an error occurs, but only LOG_DEBUG if it's an informative/debug message (e.g. "LVM: Activation generator successfully completed.").

* Fri Jul 26 2013 Peter Rajnoha <prajnoha at redhat.com> - 2.02.98-10
- Respect lvmetad global filter in pvscan --cache with a device.
- Fix segfault if devices/global_filter is not specified correctly.
- Use LOG_DEBUG/ERR msg severity instead default for lvm2-activation-generator.
- Do not include /lib/udev and /lib/udev/rules.d in device-mapper package.
- Fix some incorrect changelog dates.

  [ 1 ] Bug #986534 - LVM: Logical Volume autoactivation/generator messages in dmesg
