[linux-lvm] pvcreate problem



Hi all,
Forgive me if this is the wrong list to ask this question.
I'm quite new to LVM(-and to this list) and one of my friends brought this question up to me..

There is an error coming up when they try to "pvcreate"

Below is the "fdisk -l" output.

[root lwlsvr bin]# fdisk -l


Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 145.6 GB, 145667358720 bytes
255 heads, 32 sectors/track, 34866 cylinders

When a pvcreate is attempted on "/dev/cciss/c0d0p16" it produces the below output.

[root lwlsvr informix]# pvcreate /dev/cciss/c0d0p16
pvcreate -- can't open physical volume "/dev/cciss/c0d0p16" to get its size


pvcreate [-d|--debug] [-f[f]|--force [--force]] [-h|--help]
       [-s|--size PhysicalVolumeSize[kKmMgGtT]] [-y|--yes] [-v|--verbose]
       [--version] PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

Highly appreciate any help...

Thanks.
