[linux-lvm] Can't create LV in cluster

Hi everyone,

I have created a 2-node cluster and (after a little difficulty) created a
clustered volume group visible on both nodes. However, I can't create a
logical volume on either node. I get the following error:

Error locking on node <other node>: Error backing up metadata, can't find
VG for group #global
Aborting. Failed to activate new LV to wipe the start of it.

I have locking_type = 3 and locking_library = liblvm2clusterlock.so. The
metadata areas and sequence nos are the same using vgdisplay on both

Can anyone help me create LVs? I am happy to provide any extra info needed.

Thanks, Mike
