You don't specify a disk drive device file when creating the VGs group file.  All you need is:

 

mknod /dev/vg10/group c 128 0x00a000

 

The minor number is usually specified as 0x0a0000, when you use the first 2 characters of the hex number for the minor number.

 

So, I think you should do:

 

mknod /dev/vg10/group c 128 0x0a0000
