What version of Lustre are you testing?  In recent releases (the last  
9-12 months or so) it doesn't reformat the filesystem by default.

I _think_ (but don't recall for sure anymore) that it is also possible  
to specify REFORMAT="" so that it will not reformat.

Some tests, like conf-sanity.sh depend on being able to reformat, and  
can be run with a local config that just uses loopback files.

Cheers, Andreas
