I have slightly more info re: this error message I'm seeing. After running vgdisplay and getting the message:
VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent
I issued an $? to see the exit code and it was 98, which is explained as:
invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8))
in the vgdisplay man page. How does the lvmtab become invalid?
I do not want to have to reboot (because this will cause an outage for our customers), but I know from previous experience that the error message will disappear following a reboot. I'm also hesitant to add new disks, vg's, lv's, and file systems until I can run vgdisplay without an error. Should I be concerned re: this message???
