Hi. I have cluster with shared FC storage. On top of it I created 
clustered LVM group and added it as storage to PVE (currently latest 
from pve-no-subcription). Problem is that newly created machines 
machines cannot start with error: TASK ERROR: can't activate LV 
'/dev/EVA6000-1-2TB/vm-101-disk-1': Error locking on node 1: Device or 
resource busy After I manually deactivate volume with lvchange -a n 
EVA6000-1-2TB/vm-100-disk-1 it starts normally. I can see that volumes 
are being activated in normal mode on creation and in exclusive mode on 
machine start. Is there any good reason to activate volumes on creation, 
or it may be omitted? Also it seems that I need to modify 
auto-activation lists in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf to skip activation on boot, 
but that's different story..
