Description Norman Back 2014-09-02 10:42:19 UTC
During initial boot sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.110 fails to connect to lvmetad with error message '/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory'.

After boot is complete if I do '/etc/init.d/lvmetad restart' lvm appears to connect to lvmetad correctly and discovers new nodes like /dev/sr0

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.110
2. Reboot
Actual Results:  
lvm fails to connect to lvmetad with error message '/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory'.

Expected Results:  
lvm connects to lvmetad successfully.

Comment 6 Norman Back 2014-11-23 16:37:24 UTC
I can confirm that the fix suggested in duplicate bug 526756 resolves this issue.
After applying

> start_pre()
> {
>        checkpath --directory /var/run/lvm || return 1
> }

to /etc/init.d/lvmetad and rebooting, my rc.log contains:

 * /var/run/lvm: creating directory
 * Starting lvmetad ...
 [ ok ]
 * Setting up the Logical Volume Manager ...
  /dev/fd0: open failed: No such device or address
  /dev/cdrom: open failed: No medium found
  /dev/sr1: open failed: No medium found
  /dev/sdd: open failed: No medium found
  /dev/sde: open failed: No medium found
  /dev/sdf: open failed: No medium found
  /dev/sdg: open failed: No medium found
 [ ok ]

instead of the error message.
Comment 7 Paul Tobias 2015-02-08 13:52:35 UTC
I also had the warning messages:
  /run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
  WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.

Running /etc/init.d/lvmetad start looked good:
 * Starting lvmetad ... [ ok ]

But the warnings continued.

Running lvmetad in the foreground failed:
# lvmetad -f
[D] creating /run/lvm/lvmetad.socket
can't bind local socket: No such file or directory

I did this:
echo 'checkpath --directory "/run/lvm"' >> /etc/conf.d/lvmetad

Now it works properly. Would be great if it would work out of the box ;)
