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

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

AFAIK, the major/minor numbering scheme for block devices limits you to 15 partitions per device.
