[linux-lvm] ERROR: no physical volumes usable to extend volume group "movies"





Hey!

I have a problem that I hope you could help me with.
To make a long story short, I have installed a brand new linux (mandrake)
system and got my old Volume up and running. It works very well, except for
one thing. When I try to extend my vg with a new harddrive it says
following:

vgextend -v movies /dev/sda
vgextend -- locking logical volume manager
vgextend -- checking volume group name "movies"
vgextend -- checking volume group "movies" existence
vgextend -- checking for inactivity of volume group
vgextend -- reading data of volume group "movies" from lvmtab
vgextend -- INFO: maximum logical volume size is 2 Terabyte
vgextend -- reading data for all physical volumes from disk(s)
vgextend -- extending VGDA structures of volume group "movies"
vgextend -- ERROR: no physical volumes usable to extend volume group
"movies"

I cant locate the problem, everything looks allright but there is maybe
something I am missing?
I am trying to extend the volume group by two discs as you can see from my
cut n paste from a pvscan. Everything like pvdisplay and such seem to work.
What to do?
