ServiceGuard on RHEL4 AS X86-64

Hi,
I have installed ServiceGuard 11.16.06 on DL585 whit RHEL4 AS U3 X86-64. I need to prevent scanning of logical volumes on boot; the documentation (Managing ServiceGuard) relates to LVM1 on RedHat, but in RHEL4 LVM2 is utilized (kernel 2.6). In rc.sysinit there is the LVM2 initialization, but it differs from the one for LVM1. Which items of this file must be commented?
Thanks for your help
Regards
Giovanni Caliendo

Re: ServiceGuard on RHEL4 AS X86-64

On Red Hat systems, use the following procedure to ensure any volume group associated with a package is deactivated at boot time:
After your Serviceguard volume groups have been created on a node, back them up on all nodes using vgcfgbackup.

Edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit file and add commands at the end of that file to deactivate any volume groups that will be under Serviceguard control:

For example if sgvg00 and sgvg01 are volume groups under Serviceguard control:

# vgchange -a n /dev/sgvg00
# vgchange -a n /dev/sgvg01

Note that the volume groups may be activated temporarily but there are no harmful side effects.
