I am trying to add a physical volume for use to add volume groups and thus LV inside them. Sadly I am getting the following error.
[root@server ~]# pvcreate /dev/sdb1 Device /dev/sdb1 not found (or ignored by filtering). [root@server ~]# fdisk -l /dev/sdb WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdb'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted. Disk /dev/sdb: 19966.2 GB, 19966213488640 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2427420 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 1 267350 2147483647+ ee GPT
I would appreciate any help you could give. This would be my first time having to add a pv and when researching the issue I didn’t come across anything that was of much help.
OS is centos 6 – 64bit
# By default we accept every block device: filter = [ "a/.*/" ] # Exclude the cdrom drive # filter = [ "r|/dev/cdrom|" ] # When testing I like to work with just loopback devices: # filter = [ "a/loop/", "r/.*/" ] # Or maybe all loops and ide drives except hdc: # filter =[ "a|loop|", "r|/dev/hdc|", "a|/dev/ide|", "r|.*|" ] # Use anchors if you want to be really specific # filter = [ "a|^/dev/hda8$|", "r/.*/" ]
parted /dev/sdb "unit s" "print" Model: Adaptec AdaptecRAID5 (scsi) Disk /dev/sdb: 38996510720s Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt
Your parted output shows that you don’t have any partitions, thus
/dev/sdb1 doesn’t exist. You need to create the partition first.
