LVM error

Hi All,

I am getting the following error while creating a logical volume on my Linux Box.

lvcreate -- no free LVM block device specials available
OS:Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 9)
2.4.21-57.ELsmp
lvm-1.0.8-14


Thanks

Re: LVM error

Do you have 256 logical volumes in your system?

You may have hit one of the limits of the LVM-1.0.8 system.

256 logical volumes is quite a lot - do you really need that many? Maybe you should re-think your disk space allocation policies and reorganize the disk space into fewer but larger LVs.
