Subject: [linux-lvm] activation mode=degraded doesn't work with thin pool
Date: Tue, 17 Oct 2017 15:45:25 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I just tested lv activation with a degraded raid1 thin pool.
Unfortunately it looks like activation mode=degraded only works for
plain raid1 lvs. If you add a thin pool, lvm won't activate it in
degraded mode. (Unless you specify --activationmode partial, which is
IMHO rather dangerous.)

Is this the intended behavior?

-------------------- 8< --------------------
# lvcreate --type raid1 -m 1 -n thinmeta -L100m vg1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2
  Logical volume "thinmeta" created.
# lvcreate --type raid1 -m 1 -n Thin -L2g vg1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2
  Logical volume "Thin" created.
# lvconvert -y --type thin-pool --poolmetadata vg1/thinmeta vg1/Thin
  Thin pool volume with chunk size 64.00 KiB can address@most 15.81 TiB of data.
  WARNING: Converting logical volume vg1/Thin and vg1/thinmeta to thin pool's data and metadata volumes with metadata wiping.
  Converted vg1/Thin_tdata to thin pool.

# vgchange -a n vg1
  0 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg1" now active

### filter one leg of the raid: global_filter = [ "r|^/dev/sdb2|" ]
# systemctl restart lvm2-lvmetad.service
# pvscan --cache

# vgchange -a y

(--activationmode partial works)

I am using lvm2-2.02.171-8.el7.x86_64.
