Thread-topic: Problems with LVM in Xen3.0
Hello I was using the LVM Backup Script from xmlvalidation.com to create backups of my Xen Machines.
However the script died during execution and no real backup was created.
Now I cant remove the Snapshot anymore. Does anyone have an idea or had a similar Problem ?
xen-ha02:~# lvscan
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vgxen/test1-swap' [512.00 MB] inherit
  ACTIVE   Original '/dev/vgxen/test1' [8.17 GB] inherit
  ACTIVE   Snapshot '/dev/vgxen/test1-backup' [8.17 GB] inherit
these are my logical volumes...
xen-ha02:~# lvremove -f /dev/vgxen/test1-backup
  device-mapper ioctl cmd 9 failed: Cannot allocate memory
  Couldn't load device 'vgxen-test1--backup'.
  Unable to deactivate logical volume "test1-backup"
this is the error when I try to remove.
Thanks in Advance
