Quick how-to for registering and unregistering partitions on LVM logical volume (yes, event that is possible ;).

As always with Oracle its pretty ‘easy‘ and ‘straightforward‘ – you have to convert the high_value to XML and then extract it using XPATH (omg!). Let me guess, it would cost a fortune to provide native function/view that could do that…
Some time ago I’ve tried to solve a ‘funny’ issue with PowerDNS. It refused to start on one of my backup VPS. After apt-get dist-upgrade, it first stopped to work with very meaningful ‘Failed at step ADDRESS_FAMILIES‘ error. Well, I’ve managed to solve it somehow, but then another ‘funny’ problem popped out…
