Incompatibilities between LVM2 versions to deal with a bug.
- Did you mix two versions of LVM2 (e.g. upgrade)?

The message is pretty harmless and should disappear after the metadata
is next
updated.  (If it doesn't, try updating to a newer version.)

Thanks for the reply.

This is at a customer and as far as I can tell LVM2 has not been updated
in a while. There is a hdr file in /var/spool/up2date with a date of Feb
2007. So I have to assume that was the last time LVM2 was updated. I ran
up2date -l and it does not show any updates for LVM2.
/etc/redhat-release indicates it is RH AS 4.7.

What would need to be done to cause the metadata to be updated?
