Disabling lvmetad for a Linux Proxy

Applies to: FusionCompute, Nutanix AHV, OpenStack, Oracle VM, Red Hat Virtualization

To use a Linux proxy for the Virtual Server Agent, use the following commands to disable lvmetad. Having lvmetad running interferes with HotAdd operations during backup and recovery.

  1. Disable and stop the lvm2-lvmetad service by running the following commands:

    systemctl disable lvm2-lvmetad

    systemctl stop lvm2-lvmetad

    systemctl mask lvm2-lvmetad

  2. Disable and stop the lvm2-lvmetad.socket service by running the following commands:

    systemctl disable lvm2-lvmetad.socket

    systemctl stop lvm2-lvmetad.socket

    systemctl mask lvm2-lvmetad.socket

  3. Disable lvmetad in the LVM config file by running the following command:

    edit /etc/lvm/lvm.conf to include use_lvmetad = 0
