ICE Linux snapshot deploy logical partitions failure

ICE Linux snapshot deploy logical partitions failure

A snapshot of a node that has logical partitions fails to deploy. The partition wizard fails to start. Removing the 'extended' (type=0x5) partition from the snapshot .xml file worksaround the limitation.

A node with the following partition scheme shows the problem:

/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 * 1 514 2097104 83 Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 515 520 24480 83 Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p3 521 526 24480 83 Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p4 527 35132 141192480 5 Extended
/dev/cciss/c0d0p5 527 35132 141192479+ 8e Linux LVM

the following line is generated for the Extended parition and causes a java exception:

<partition index="4" device="/dev/cciss/c0d0p4" type="0x5"/>
