PE Stale on FC10

Go to solution

PE Stale on FC10

lvdisplay command show "PE 2170 stale" on a mirrored lv; but trough vgdisplay command we see that the (mirror) disk with PE stale was available.
We have substitute the bad disk on FC10.
Before the substitution we have do "lvreduce -m 0 /dev/vgXXX/lvXXX /dev/dsk/cXtXdX".
After the substitution we have do "vgremove /dev/vgXXX /dev/dsk/cXtXdX"
"pvcreate -v "newdisk"" "vgextend dev/vgXXX /dev/dsk/cXtXdX" and "lvextend -m1 /dev/vgXXX/lvXXX /dev/dsk/cXtXdX".
We try to repeat the command lvdisplay but we see also "PE 2170 stale".

Any help would be greatly appreciate

Re: PE Stale on FC10

Try running "lvsync", it usually fixes this kind of error it there is no hardware problem on the physical volume (disk). Simply run ..
# lvsync /dev/vgXX/lvolY
on the LV that has the "stale" extent.

Re: PE Stale on FC10

I execute the command lvsync but the problem persist.
The output message of the lvsync command is:

Couldn't re-synchronize stale partitions of the logical volume:
Device offline/Powerfailed
lvsync: Couldn't resynchronize logical volume "/dev/vg_dblsb/lv_dblsb2". "lvsync"

I hope that you can help me another time.

Re: PE Stale on FC10

emm .. lets try "vgchange" command that will trigger the synchronization of the LVs at a higher level.

# vgchange -a y /dev/vg_dblsb

The above will re-activate the VG and force synchronization. Let us know ..
