Yes there are other volumes using ext3.
/boot 20M ext3
/ 512M ext3
/usr 512M ext3
/var 512M ext3
/tmp 128M reiserfs LVM
/cache 512M reiserfs LVM
/chroot 512M ext3 LVM
/usr/src 4096Mreiserfs LVM
/data ~30G xfs LVM
the tests are done on /chroot for ext3,
/usr/src for resierfs & /data for xfs.
I can skip the ext3 snapshot creation part - each test is done on its own
logical volume; however, in the dark dim past any of these could have had
other filesystems on them.
Does this sound sensible?
1) Run tests without doing the ext3 snapshot creation, then
2) dd the entire lv that is giving problems and try again?
Thanks for your time & effort.
