Subject:   gvinum - recovering from stale in multi user mode
Message-ID:  <!~!UENERkVCMDkAAQACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACAAAAAAAAAAcHOr9RDfH0OoaFPARbW9/gAAAADBAAAAAIIBABAAAABxWazAjS/9T55sQrHRr7jRAQAAAAA=@kmjeuro.com>

Hello,

build a few 5.3 boxes and found a problem which never occured before with
vinum.

when creating a new box (mirror only) the p1 plexes are stale till they are
synced the first time. with gvinum when starting in multi user mode:

usr.p1.s0 it cant be startet
usr.p1 it starts and then gets a error filling the console very fast and i
only can switch off the box.

in single user mode with mounted and unmounted drives it works fine.

is there any docu mentioning the differences in:

creating gvinum volumes compared to vinum?
recovering from stale comparing to vinum?

the need for single user mode when recovering is very bad, because sometimes
harddisk gets stale when read errors occured and there was a possibility to
recover them till one arraived at the servers place.

many thanks,

karl
