Re: lvm lvmetad=1, md_component_detection=1 on raid0, no device found PV

Nevertheless (why using raid0 not raid1 wink)

I created another raid array (raid0; metadata format 1.2)
There also no issues

I will recreate the PVs / LVs using my gentoo box (there without any lvmetad), maybe this is a problem

Creating in arch:

# mdadm --create --level=0 --raid-devices=2 --chunk=64 -e 1.0 /dev/md4 /dev/sda\
9 /dev/sdb9
mdadm: array /dev/md4 started.

# pvcreate /dev/md4
  Physical volume "/dev/md4" successfully created

# vgcreate vg5 /dev/md127
  Volume group "vg5" sucessfully created

After rebooting everything was fine

Then switched to gentoo:

# vgremove vg5
# pvremove /dev/md127       -- wasnt there in /etc/mdadm.conf / initramfs, therefore named as md127
# pvcreate /dev/md127
# vgcreate vg5 /dev/md127
# lvcreate -L 10G --name test vg5

Rebooting to arch:

# pvscan
  No device found for PV LP33Nk-7EaC-JPht-v33x-duOh-2uTQ-DfP0zz.

After removing /dev/md4 (new new created md array) from /etc/mdadm.conf and rebooting arch (so the new md will be named 127 too), the issue is still there

I said I never use raid0 only raid1, but I guess you mean why not use raid0 and only1, or I misunderstand you here wink

Very nice!

Yeah, you might be spot on here, if it works for me, it should most certainly work for you too.
Btw. why don't you use Arch, OCD thing? I used to create my volumes/partitions for all other OS'ses with FreeBSD... though I already use Arch for it for quite some time now wink

Thats very nice.

Why on earth would you do that when it was working?, or are you trying to pinpoint it?

Sorry, just try to identify the main issue...

0) In the gentoo box the md array was named /dev/md127, i created the PV on base on that

a) When booting into arch without any definition in initramfs/etc/mdadm.conf (therefore name md127 too), the PV will be found

# pvdisplay /dev/md127
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/md127
  VG Name               vg5
  PV Size               19.53 GiB / not usable 3.88 MiB
  Allocatable           yes
  PE Size               4.00 MiB
  Total PE              4999

  PV UUID               LP33Nk-7EaC-JPht-v33x-duOh-2uTQ-DfP0zz

b) When booting into arch with a definition in initramfs/etc/mdadm.conf (named md4), the PV will have issues

Could you show your mdadm.conf for cluess.

If i comment out /dev/md4, pvscan will have no issues

Re: lvm lvmetad=1, md_component_detection=1 on raid0, no device found PV

I have read somewhere on the net that says something like: If mdadm discovers a problem, it will create new device names on it's own, if I find it I place the link.
The solution he used was removing 'unnecessary' items from mdadm.conf, something like this:

ARRAY /dev/md/0 UUID=65a58608:9c6e3767:1ed32281:ddbb141f
ARRAY /dev/md/2 UUID=56a0fd3e:32e58bc6:350e9149:4624c998
ARRAY /dev/md/3 UUID=ca1db8a2:4934466a:95f1e9cb:b3f942b8
ARRAY /dev/md/4 UUID=591f9826:64527a8d:df6748e8:a0ce4f4b

This should only affect 'naming' as far as I know.

edit: here is the link on Ubuntu forums

Re: lvm lvmetad=1, md_component_detection=1 on raid0, no device found PV

As mentioned, currently i dont have any problem, just wanted to figure out the described issues

No i can reproduce the error:

# mdadm --create --level=0 --e 1.0 --chunk=64 /dev/md5 /dev/sda5 /dev/sdb5  

# -- reboot / not updating mdadm.conf in initramfs ---
# -- after reboot

# pvcreate /dev/md127                -- the new raid array will get a name, 127 by default
# vgcreate vg5 /dev/md127
# lvcreate -L 10G --name test vg5

# -- now updating mdadm.conf and initramfs

# mdadm -Es > /etc/mdadm.conf
# mkinitcpio  -- new initramfs, is was even using pacman -S linux (easier ;))

# -- reboot / md127 will be md5 
# -- after reboot

Re: lvm lvmetad=1, md_component_detection=1 on raid0, no device found PV

I understand, you have no problem, but lets go in the md5 -->md127 change.
Maybe thas what triggers it, your reboot in between.
The creation from mdx to lv is done in one go here.
I will try and do it like you, with a reboot in between, I'll report back.

even for:

Re: lvm lvmetad=1, md_component_detection=1 on raid0, no device found PV

You don't mention using vgscan & vgchange -ay I do use them, the wiki says this too.
Well, I tried it the way you do, with a reboot in between, also without the issue.

edit; Why run mkinitcpio?

without updating the initramfs you will have a "default" named md device (isnt it?)

When simply adding a array I don't do this I must say..

edit;Forget to say, rebooting is also not necessary, you can create it and mount it.
