Hello Shad.

Strange, this should work.
Could you try to run vgcreate with the -d option and send me the
output? This should provide additional information what is happening.

The only problem that i could imagine off my head is that the
/etc/lvmtab is not up-to-date (this happened once to me a few
revisions ago). Please run vgscan and try the vgcreate again.


Hope that helps
Michael
