R1Soft error Failed to backup LVM/MD Configuration

R1Soft error will resemble something like – “Failed to backup LVM/MD Configuration” with running LVM based commands from R1Soft.

Usually due to an upstream vendor or repo update of the LVM binary that conflicts with the R1soft native configuration “lvm.static” command.


Failed backup of LVM configuration
Failed to execute command ‘lvm.static pvs -o pv_fmt,pv_uuid,dev_size,pv_name,pv_mda_free,pv_mda_size,pv_all,seg_all,pvseg_all,vg_all,lv_all –nameprefixes –noheadings –units b –nosuffix –unquoted’


# mv /usr/sbin/r1soft/lib/lvm.static /usr/sbin/r1soft/lib/lvm.static_orig

# ln -s /sbin/lvm /usr/sbin/r1soft/lib/lvm.static
