When I type "lvcreate -n xxxxx /dev/vg_ops" i get an error of "unable to create logical volume: argument of out domain"

Please can anyone help

Re: lvcreate error

you need to specify a size for the logical volume.

This can be in MB (mostly I use this one) or physical extents.

try it using the -L 1024 (for 1 gig)

I am trying to create the an lv of zero size and then use lvextend to extend it afterwards.

Re: lvcreate error

Hmmm....

That's really weird.

In that case you should be able to do it.

I just did on one of my boxes.

stupid question, but do all of the correct things for the VG exist?

Re: lvcreate error

Hi,

This is a fairly straight forward command. I would suggest to install the latest LVM command patch PHCO_24437 if yours is 11.0

Re: lvcreate error

Hi Neale,

Suggest you should look into the LVM kernel and command patches for the version of hp-ux you have on the system.

Hope this helps.

Re: lvcreate error

Please check MAX LV & Cur LV Numbers, I hope both would be same, due to which you are not able to create any new logical volume.

 

In this case, you can create an new volume group and then create an volume.

 

Please give points, if this given suggestion would help you.
