ocfs2 mount with datavolume option fails on sles11

im using SLES 11 to build up Oracle 11g R2 RAC and using SuSE high avalability extension for ocfs2 packages. when trying to mount shared disks (ocfs2 formatted) with datavolume option (that is required for oracle ocr and voting disks) i'm facing the following error in kernel messages (dmesg):

OCFS2 1.5.0
(15281,0):ocfs2_parse_options:1213 ERROR: Unrecognized mount option "datavolume" or missing value

mounting with datavolume option is REQUIRED for ocr and voting disks , any ideas how to mount with this option?

Please post this in the SLES forums. These forums are only for Open Enterprise Server, not for "generic" SLES questions.

Re: ocfs2 mount with datavolume option fails on sles11

I'm facing the same issue:[ 99.686239] (mount.ocfs2,11087,56):ocfs2_parse_options:1476 ERROR: Unrecognized mount option "datavolume" or missing value
with a SLES11SP1 Kernel and OCFS2 1.4 ( which is mandatory on SLES11 you cannot use the 1.6 version of the OCFS2).

How was this solved and where could i get more information as this is an absolute showstopper on our end.

Thanks a lot

Re: ocfs2 mount with datavolume option fails on sles11

Faced the same issue on the SLES 11 SP1 kernel "ocfs2_parse_options:1476 ERROR: Unrecognized mount option "datavolume" or missing value"..

The mount works just fine without the -o datavolume option...

mount -t ocfs2 /dev/sdxx /dir

When we add the needed -o datavolume option thats when we get the error...

mount -o datavolume,nointr -t ocfs2 /dev/sdxx /dir

Was this issue ever re-solved on the SLES 11 SP1... Any patches or info on where one would we need to move to get more info.

Cheers
