A few times ago, we've improve setup-storage so LVM and RAID arrays
could refer to diskX to use entire disk.
I've found in the changelogs that it has been integrated in
setup-storage 1.1.2 ; fai (3.3) ; Tue, 03 Nov 2009
"changelog : setup-storage/Parser.pm: LVM volume groups or RAID arrays
may now refer to diskX to use the entire disk"
This has well worked, but today we've found that it doesn't works
setup-storage tell us : "Empty disk_config stanza for device /dev/sdb"
We used to declare this type of config like this :
disk_config disk1 bootable:1
primary /boot 100 ext3 rw
primary swap 1G swap sw
primary / 1G ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro
logical /usr 2G ext3 rw
logical /var 2G ext3 rw
logical /home 512 ext3 rw
logical /tmp 1G ext3 rw
logical - 4G- - -
vg VG1 disk1.9
vg VG2 disk2
VG2-PART1 /PART1 30G- xfs rw
I've tried to comment line : "disk_config disk2"
this give us the error : /dev/sdb is not a valid block device
Could you tell me what is the "correct" way to declare such a configuration please ?
