Hi all,

same problem for me: today after a reboot of a cluster node, clvmd could 
not start properly anymore since pvscan hangs.

If I try to start vgscan on the other node it hangs too!! If I 'strace' 
on pvscan I can see it stops while reading...

It's a cluster of two nodes, with quorum disk (two_node="0"), offering 
several VMs installed on raw partitions in a CLVM environment.

It's running version 5.4, x86_64 , with the following packages:



Any suggestion on what can I check/change/install? I don't have any idea 
on what happened...
