If I take the machine down to single user mode, and fdisk it
to create a
single large partition on a disk. I can create the pv, and
the vg with
no problem. Then I create multiple logical volumes on the
large vg. This
also works fine. The problems start when I try to create on
the logical volumes.
The first one or two might create ok, and mount up, then it
apart, with errors on block counts, and block access, etc.
capture the exact error messages, but I'm hoping that
someone here has
encountered this, and knows what it is. Two messages I did
lvm -- lvm_blk_ioctl: unknown command 0x126e
mkfs.xfs: warning - cannot set blocksize on block device
/dev/datavg/biglv: Invalid Argument.
Has anyone else seen this, and how do I cure it?
Thanks in advance!
I'm not on the list but I read theses lines... And there's
one thing perhaps which can help you :
After making some changes with fdisk you have to reboot you
computer to be sure that everything is fine. If not I have
had some strange errors like these ones
Hope it could help
