Question I seem to be able to make new LVM-partitions.


I seem to be able to make new LVM-partitions.

I have already used duckduckgo and google and have failed to my particular problem. I have been using LVM since 2006, and have never seem this particular error, and I have already made several LVM-partitions. I have been making a simple LVM-partiton.

I am using:

"lvcreate LVM+group --size 10G --name somename"

The LVM-partition is created, but I unable to create (format) a new partition.

The error involved:

"failed to set a proper state for notification by cookie value ${decimal and octal values} to initialize waiting for incoming notification"

I have also seen the following error:

"command failed with status code 5"

That you for any available error or fix.

Was "lvcreate LVM+group --size 10G --name somename" the literal command you used?

Could you paste output of lvs?

Maybe some issue with the + you use in the VG name?
You could try using quotes

Except that written, the lvcreate command string has always worked before.
It seems to me that something has broken LVM, and we need to fix the underlying problem:

"command failed with status code 5"
and
"failed to set a proper state for notification by cookie value ${decimal and octal values} to initialize waiting for incoming notification"

What you could try is using the -v(vv) switch to give extra verbosity.
That might shed some light on this.
