[lvm-devel] vgcreate and vgextend dont use the maximum space on PV



Hello ,

I try to migrate mirror an LogicalVolumes from one disk to the other.
The disks are identical.

/dev/emcpowerd     52313  myvg
/dev/emcpowereh    52313

emcpowerd shows 512K unusable.

rhel6.3# pvdisplay /dev/emcpowerd
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/emcpowerd
  VG Name               myvg
  PV Size               51,09 GiB / not usable 512,00 KiB
  Allocatable           yes (but full)
  PE Size               4,00 MiB
  Total PE              13078
  Free PE               0
  Allocated PE          13078
  PV UUID               GyMBL2-v84W-719F-069j-Mga6-6tSe-c9fP2D

when extending ( even creating ) the VG, the new PV show one less PE and 4,5 MiB .
rhel6.3# vgextend myvg /dev/emcpowereh

rhel6.3# pvdisplay /dev/emcpowereh
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/emcpowereh
  VG Name               myvg
  PV Size               51,09 GiB / not usable 4,50 MiB
  Allocatable           yes
  PE Size               4,00 MiB
  Total PE              13077
  Free PE               13077
  Allocated PE          0
  PV UUID               p6VT4i-Q98Y-MbfP-WHFi-V01B-Ohcy-yRv83D


So 13077 PE are less then 13878 PEs and mirroring fails.
Note: the emcpower devices are SAN Devices and /dev/emcpowerd was created under RHEL5

How can I allocate the full disk ?

Thank you
Bernd
