Re: not enough free physical extents available

Notice: Allocation PVG-strict !

What was your command? Does it match the PVG configuration?

Hope this helps!

Re: not enough free physical extents available

I'm trying ro mirror the volume whith
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol1 /dev/dsk/c1t2d0
Other LV's are not using PVG-strict policy, but aren't mirroring with same error message...
