Re: [linux-lvm] lvm 1.0.1-rc4 and vgcreate error



Carlos,

still strange, because the error you see is displayed if a magic identifier
which gets written to the device once you run pvcreate can't be recognized
afterwards.

In order to spot some more light on this, please send the following command
output to me in personal email (please use actual LVM 1.0.1 available at
www.sistina.com):

fdisk -l /dev/hda
pvcreate /dev/hda1[01]
pvscan
vgcreate -d lvmdisk /dev/hda1[01]


Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
