Bug#474217: initramfs-tools: /etc/lvm.conf needed in initrd



Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.85h
Severity: serious
X-Debbugs-CC: manon@manon.de

Hi,

while creating an initrd the /etc/lvm.conf is not copied into the initrd, this can result in a pretty ugly behaviours as the initrd will activate all VG/LV it can find. For example if you boot from SAN all LUNs will show up in the initrd, including those which may be part of a cluster and should not be activated (yet), or those which are supposed to be passed into a guest OS of your favourite virtualization solution. The listed reasons are just a few why you probably don't want to activate all LVs, and why you usually configure lvm in lvm.conf - ignoring this file can result in a severe loss of data. Of course, copying the file only makes sense if it was modified.


Best regards,

Bernd
