vgcreate problem

Hi;

I received the following error when create vg :-

# vgcreate /dev/vg01 /dev/dsk/c6t0d0
Increased the number of physical extents per physical volume to 35002.
vgcreate: Volume group "/dev/vg01" could not be created:
VGRA for the disk is too big for the specified parameters. Increase the
extent size or decrease max_PVs/max_LVs and try again.

Please guide me with correct command . My disk located in external disk array ( MSA 30 ) and my disk size is = 146.8GB.

Hi,

without knowing more, the best option is to just use a larger extent size:
vgcreate -s 32 /dev/vg.....
