Bug#252164: Package: installation-reports
Hang on, there's an alarm bell that I've not been heeding.
Looking in the code: "Incorrect metadata area header checksum" is a fatal error.
If that's is occurring on one of tour PVs then the VG should not activate.that
leads me to think it might be another disk/device that is producing the error.
Maybe LVM2 has spotted something that looks like an MDA but actually isn't.
Can you try this:
# lvm vgscan -vvv >log
See if you can figure out which actual device lvm is complaining aabout and see
if its actually a device that should be in your VG. Looking at the top of the
bug report it looks like it might just be the CD-ROM.
Then all you do is edit /etc/lvm/lvm.conf to exclude that device (actually I've
done this for you in the latest releases of the lvm package):
filter = [ "r|/dev/cdrom|" ]
