Re: [linux-lvm] invalid physical volume SOLVED (sorta)



The problem "invalid physical volume" was caused by LVM not recognizing the volume being called by the path /dev/emcpowera and/or /dev/emcpowera1. Being that I'm not clustering and I don't need the functionality provided by EMC's app/wrapper PowerPath, I uninstalled it and used the standard device name /dev/sdX.

I don't understand what to try as I'm already running lvm-1.0.8-9? Yes, that's my comment #37. Any idea what "U5" is in comment #38?

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

Diaz Rodriguez, Eduardo wrote:



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

please summarize

Clif try to make a partition type linux lvm.. (8e) and after try pvcreate

over it

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?
