Found duplicate PV on EMC PowerPath with LVM

I just encountered the following problem whenever the contractor
changing shared storage interface from iSCSi to Fibre.

[root@host02 ~]# pvscan
  connect() failed on local socket: Connection refused
  Internal cluster locking initialisation failed.
  WARNING: Falling back to local file-based locking.

to fix above.. and enable for usage..

edit the /etc/lvm/lvm.conf

search for filter.

    # A filter that tells LVM2 to only use a restricted set of devices.
    # The filter consists of an array of regular expressions.  These
    # expressions can be delimited by a character of your choice, and
    # prefixed with either an 'a' (for accept) or 'r' (for reject).
    # The first expression found to match a device name determines if
    # the device will be accepted or rejected (ignored).  Devices that
    # don't match any patterns are accepted.
 
    # Be careful if there there are symbolic links or multiple filesystem
    # entries for the same device as each name is checked separately against
    # the list of patterns.  The effect is that if any name matches any 'a'
    # pattern, the device is accepted; otherwise if any name matches any 'r'
    # pattern it is rejected; otherwise it is accepted.
 
    # Don't have more than one filter line active at once: only one gets used.
 
    # Run vgscan after you change this parameter to ensure that
    # the cache file gets regenerated (see below).
    # If it doesn't do what you expect, check the output of 'vgscan -vvvv'.
 
 
    # By default we accept every block device:
    filter = [ "a/.*/" ]

change the line

filter= ["a/.*/"]

to something like.

    filter = [ "a/sda[1-9]$/" "a/emcpower.*/" "r/.*/" ]


then run the following to re-scan..

vgscan -vvvv

done.. !

    hi bro, i am doing the same thing as you but if you just show the Connection Information it does not show the bandwidth and speed.

    another tool that similar with Mobile Connect is Vodafon Mobile Connect.

    btw, does the modem goes into stalled mode of purplish LED and sometimes resume to light blue?

      .. Vodafon Mobile Connect is the software come with the USB Modem itself right.

      And it only run on windows machine..
      for the bandwidth and speed , you can monitor it by adding some “applet” to the “top panel”
      namely “NetSpeed”

      the modem goest into purplish LED and back to light blue due to coverage .. (i think switching between GPRS and EDGE) mode.. can also dropped by itself whenever idle. the best one is with CYAN color.. indicating of 3G coverage available.

    haha.. for the testing purpose..that ubuntu was running on livecd..
    -with the sluggish internet connection provided by
    these so-called wifi broadband..
    – too lazy to plug in usb and transfer back to other os.

    ended up captured on handphone camera a lot easier.
    afterward can just bluetooth transfer it and upload to blog.
