QNAP Systems, Inc. - Network Attached Storage (NAS)



Why does the SSH console show "Found duplicate PV" when using the PVS command in QTS 4.3.0?

Applied Models:


The QNAP NAS stores two copies of the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) metadata for storage usage and backup. When the PVS command is run in QTS 4.3.0 or higher, the updated QTS LVM utility will inform users of this design. Therefore, the "Found duplicate PV" warning is normal and shows your NAS is working properly.
