[linux-lvm] Cannot create an lvm.

Hi all.

I am having a problem creating a new LVM on my system.

I currently have one on there, and am trying to replace it with a
bigger set of drives.

It is failing when I go to lvcreate a logical volume.

Vgdisplay reports:

Where filebase is the active LVM, and mass is the new disk in the new
LVM.

The results of the lvcreate command:

root warlock:~# lvcreate -l24426 mass -n storage
lvcreate -- can't create logical volume: volume group "mass" isn't
active

Any ideas?
Yes, I already did a vgscan;vgchange ľa y
It says mass is already active (along with filebase)

Looking forward to a fresh perspective on this ?
