UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-24996: Unable to get disk layout version

I'm trying to recreate a file system and I'm getting the following results...

 

The create of the file system works fine.

# /usr/sbin/mkfs -F vxfs -o bsize=8192 /dev/vg12/rlv121
version 7 layout
33554432 sectors, 4194304 blocks of size 8192, log size 8192 blocks
largefiles supported

 

The mount of the file system fails.

# /usr/sbin/mount -F vxfs /dev/vg12/lv121 /lvai
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-20012: not a valid vxfs file system
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-24996: Unable to get disk layout version

 

I run a fsck and it works fine.

# /usr/sbin/fsck -F vxfs -y /dev/vg12/lv121
file system is clean - log replay is not required

 

If it matters...  Server is a BL870C i2.  These particluar drives are in a D2700 disk enclusre, HP 6Gb SAS BL switch and p711 SAS controller.  I have partitioned the drives (1 volume group and multiple logical volumes) and have other lv's mounted and functional.  

# uname -a
HP-UX hugo B.11.31 U ia64 3448145680 unlimited-user license

 

I'm most perplexed by why this is failing.  I'm not trying to do anything crazy.  I get the same results with or without the 8k block size.

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks, Kevin.
