SUMMARY: [linux-lvm] pvcreate -- ERROR "Success"



I found out the problem, I believe.
pvcreate was not able to handle the physical volume
size (1.1 Tb --Promise Technology Raid5 BOX =7x200Gb
ATA drives), thus the weird ERROR --"Success" message.

I chunked up the RAID5 array into 2 partitions, 500Gb
and 600Gb each, and pvcreate worked like a charm.

When i delete the partitions and remake one large
partition (sdb1 alone) of [First cylinder (1-145891,
default 1):] 1.1Tb, it can't handle!

Should this be sent to the lvm-bugs group? Not sure
about rules in this mailing list, this was my first
post.

_Thanks

Richard Mollel
