problem with creating volume group in LVM

I've configured a volume group vgsg02:
which is shared on 2 servers( it will be a part of a package of linux serviceguard),
and I have this repeating problem:
every time that I do a reboot, the volume group configuration is not ok.
the scenario is the following:
if I issue the command ( the vg is vgsg02
vgdisplay | grep -w -e vgsg02 | wc -l
I get the value of 0
the second time I issue the command, the value will be 1.
what can cause that?

Re: problem with creating volume group in LVM


I had this very same problem.

There are two solutions in the thread, either of which will work.
