[linux-lvm] LVM questions & problems.



I'm practicing doing some LVM commands, and am coming up with some
problems -

Most disconcerting is that when I try to create a directory in the LV, I
get the following error - (this does not happen all the time, but almost
all the time 99%) -

[root localhost Tmp]# mkdir test1
mkdir: cannot create directory `test1': Input/output error

Creating normal files on the LV is not a problem.

Also, the figures in the following outputs don't seem to make sense to
me -

287Mb of space taken on my LV lvol1 (shown using du -h).

LV lvol1 - shows all 75 logical extends taken, I'm assuming filling up
the 300Mb LV size.

LV Size                300 MB
Current LE             75
Allocated LE           75


PV shows too many physical extends used for the proportion of disk space
used. -

Total PE              76
Free PE               1

PVdisplay shows too many physical extents used again

Total PE              76
Free PE               1
Allocated PE          75
