impossible to create a ext3 filesystem on a LVM2 Logical Volume



Dears,

I'm faced with the above mentionned problem.

System is a HP Proliant DL380 with HP SmartArray 5304-256 Controller and a HP StorageWorks 4300 disk shelf.
OS is Debian/testing with kernel 2.6.3 and LVM2.


I've created a new LV and when I try to create the FS on it, it fails when saying "Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information:"
sar output shows that CPU is in 100% wio.


Only way to solve it is to perform a hard reboot (killing the process does nothing).

I've performed a strace of the 'mkfs.ext3' and last system call is a call to fsync (see hereafter as small part of the trace file)

Any help appreciated !

Paul
