Your physical volume can be a whole disk (mpath0) or a partition (mpath0p1). I use the partition schema as blank disks could be accidentally used by a follow on admin who does not fully understand the system configuration.

If the entire LUN is a PV then you don't need to partition it.

I have a 2199GB LUN assigned to my 3 node cluster. Since its >2TB, I used
parted to create the EFI GPT parittion. After that pvcreate and vgcreate
were successfull but I get the following error when doing lvcreate.
You mean don't use parted or any and directly proceed to pvcreate?
