Updated lvm2 packages that add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lvm2 packages contain support for Logical Volume Management (LVM).
Previously, the maximum length of a tag was limited to 128 characters. However, in certain cases, this may have been too restrictive. To remove this restriction, the lvm2 packages have been updated to support tags that are up to 1024 characters long.
Due to technical limitations, a valid tag can consist of a limited range of characters only. With this update, the list of allowed characters has been extended, and tags can newly contain "/", "=", "!", ":", "#", and "&".
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated lvm2 packages, which add these enhancements.
