LVM won't create PV on raid partition
Just noticed this behaviour on a 5.99.40 system:
# lvm pvcreate /dev/rvnd0d
Physical volume "/dev/rvnd0d" successfully created
# lvm pvcreate /dev/rraid0h
Device /dev/rraid0h not found (or ignored by filtering).
h: 96468864 50331648 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 49152 -
While trying to create a PV on vnd0a:
/dev/rvnd0a: write failed after 0 of 2048 at 0: Read-only file system
/dev/rvnd0a not wiped: aborting
# newfs -O2 /dev/rvnd0a
/dev/rvnd0a: 16.0MB (32768 sectors) block size 4096, fragment size 512
using 4 cylinder groups of 4.00MB, 1024 blks, 1808 inodes.
super-block backups (for fsck_ffs -b #) at:
144, 8336, 16528, 24720,
/dev/rvnd0a: open failed: Device not configured
Can't open /dev/rvnd0a exclusively. Mounted filesystem?
Now I understand why it says 'device not configured' but this seems
picky, shouldn't it say the same for the 'd' partition too, then?
Also, according to the manpage:
pvcreate initializes PhysicalVolume for later use by the Logical
Manager (LVM). Each PhysicalVolume can be a disk partition,
disk, meta device, or loopback file.
The question is: Shouldn't creating a PV on raid0h (fstype=unused) work?
