Re: [linux-lvm] vgscan errors

Well, after rooting around, it looks like my partition table was screwed up. However, when try to create the vg and lv again (after re-fdisking the disk) it fails at the lv creation. Vgcreate works with no problem; I can reboot and re-activate the vg I just created. When I run lvcreate, I get the following error:

#lvcreate -l23722 -nfirst_lv first_vg
lvcreate -- ERROR 0 writing volume group backup file /etc/lvmtab.d/first_vg.tmp in vg_cfgbackup.c [line 268]
lvcreate -- WARNING: you don't have an automatic backup of "first_vg"
lvcreate -- logical volume "/dev/first_vg/first_lv successfully created.

vgdisplay then shows the correct number of free/used extents (1 free, the rest used), but a vgscan now will fail miserably (before or after reboot) with the same error (ERROR 2)

This is a new disk that I'm trying to setup for the first time.

Error 2 is ENOENT (no entry).
Could be a space problem in case / run full.
