Description

Cloning operation will fail in storage area network (SAN) environments on Oracle Linux 7 or later or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 or later because lvm2-lvmetad service is enabled by default.

Error message

You must set the value of use_lvmetad = 0 in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf and stop the lvm2-lvmetad service. Then, retry the clone operation.
