Re: [Xen-devel] trying to get a domU to manage lvm pvs

I'm trying to have a domU run lvm and manage one vg, a few pvs, and lots of lvs without the dom0 having any role in the situation.

One more piece of info. If I turn up lvm logging to debug level I see this:

   Using physical volume(s) on command line
       /dev/hda6: Added to device cache
       /dev/hda6: Skipping: Unrecognised LVM device type 3
       /dev/hda6: Skipping (cached)
 Failed to read physical volume "/dev/hda7"

At this point, it seems that xen exports a block device with some information different enough than the original block device that it's tripping up lvm, but I have no idea what that might be. Has anybody had lvm working in a domU?
