Re: [Vserver] lvremove: "Can't remove open logical volume"

Hi Christian and Rik,

Thank you for the "umounting in all namespaces" solution, it seems to
partially solve the problem. But, for a reason I can't understand, some
logical volunes still remain open even after performing vnamespace -e [xid]
umount for each running context.

Best regards,
