Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3
File system hangs and command does not return the prompt when executing pvmove.
The issue is due to a bug in the new
code which suspends the device but does not resume it. An interim
solution is to resume the device manually using dmsetup:
# dmsetup resume device_name
Where device_name is meant to be the filename under /dev/mapper.
This happens specifically with
version lvm2-2.02.17-7.36.1 which is provided with patch
slesp4-lvm2-7916 of January 13th 2012.
The bug has already been reported to engineering and a temporary fix is available. For further information please open a Service Request and mention this TID.
