Re: [linux-lvm] invalid physical volume



I receive the same for all commands you requested, for example:
# pvcreate /dev/emcpowera1
pvcreate -- invalid physical volume "/dev/emcpowera1"

try pvcreate /dev/emcpowera1 is for the partition not for the disk...

please summarize

send a output of pvcreate -v /dev/emcpowera

if you complile with debug use pvcreate -dv /dev/emcpowera

I'm running lvm-1.0.8-9 on RHES3 and am receiving the following when I try to utilize a volume from an EMC array:
# pvcreate /dev/emcpowera
pvcreate -- invalid physical volume "/dev/emcpowera"


The OS sees the volume fine:
# fdisk -l /dev/emcpowera
Disk /dev/emcpowera: 10.7 GB, 10737418240 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1305 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

I can create a partition and then a filesystem without issue, but I really need to use it within LVM.

Any ideas?
