Unfortunately I answered directly to Gang He earlier.
I'm seeing the exact same faulty behavior with 2.02.181:
WARNING: Not using device /dev/md126 for PV
WARNING: PV 4ZZuWE-VeJT-O3O8-rO3A-IQ6Y-M6hB-C3jJXo prefers device
/dev/sda because of previous preference.
WARNING: Device /dev/sda has size of 62533296 sectors which is
smaller than corresponding PV size of 125065216 sectors. Was device resized?
So lvm decices to pull up the PV based on the component device metadata,
even though the raid is already up and running. Things worked as usual
with a .16* version.
Additionally I see:
/dev/sdj: open failed: No medium found
/dev/sdk: open failed: No medium found
/dev/sdl: open failed: No medium found
/dev/sdm: open failed: No medium found
In what crazy scenario would a removeable medium be part of an VG and
why in god's name would one even cosinder including removeable drives in
the scan as a default?
For the time being I added a filter, as this is the only workaround.
Funny enough, even though filtered, I am still getting the no medium
messages - this makes absolutely no sense at all.
