I used CLVM in the labs for the RH Storage course last Sep. .. everyones
systems kept locking up and had to be rebooted. I believe the Kernel

We were also told that Lucli was not yet as mature as the X-Windows
app... And never to mix the two.
I'll be testing 5.1 HA with a view to deploying Q2, so's it's good to
hear things are working the way they should.
