< jethro> awh crap.... < jethro> the LVM howto didn't mention that is wasn't safe to move the / filesystem whilst it was in use * jethro deadlocked the server < jethro> I sure hope it'll work after reboot < friend1> (simulate a tension-filled pause here) < friend2> o_O < friend1> err < friend1> heh < friend1> where'd you move it to? < jethro> from one physical LVM volume to another with pvmove < jethro> I think the LVM is toast now though... :-( < jethro> yup, it's toast. #$$@!#%
What does that mean? It means that I found out the hard way that it IS NOT safe to move a live LVM physical volume from one disk to another with the pvmove command IF the physical volume contains the / filesystem.
Apparantly the problem is that the binaries are in use when it tries to move itself and causes the system to dead lock. :-(
