encrypted lvm nodes disappear after a while
« on: May 01, 2011, 04:00:30 AM »
Here is the situation

i have a 750gb disk with luks partition. inside is a lvm pv and volume group.

opening it by hand with cryptsetup and doing vgchange -ay works just fine. however, somewhere after 20 minutes the device nodes for lvm volumes are no longer there, and any lvm commands seem to stall and not produce any output.

currently mounted lvm volumes work fine.

is anyone else experiencing this?

I remember stalling lvm commands from waiting for udev population/creation, however I cannot tell what's going wrong in your case... dmsetup creates the device nodes, maybe lvm is waiting for cryptsetup, which is not working after 20 min. I'll update cryptsetup to 1.3.0 and we'll see if that fixes it :)

[edit]
Updated cryptsetup.tcz to 1.3.0, please update your extension and check again.
