df not displaying logical volumes


oel 5.7 64bit, created directories /u01-/u06, when i issued a df /u02 it displays the same information as /u03 /u04 or /u05... my fstab file has these entries:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/usb1 /mnt/cdrom auto defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup01/u02 /u02 ext3 default 0 2
/dev/VolGroup02/u03 /u03 ext3 default 0 2
/dev/VolGroup03/u04 /u04 ext3 default 0 2
/dev/VolGroup03/u05 /u05 ext3 default 0 2
--------------------------------------------------------

i can add directories and files under each of the mount points, if i do a df /dev/VolGroup03/u05 it returns the same information as /dev/VolGroup01/u02 and i know that /u02 has my oracle database files while /u03 has no data ?

-------------------------------------

my pvcreate was /dev/sdb.sdc,sdd
vgcreate volgroup01 /dev/sdb
volgroup02 /dev/sdc
volgroup03 /dev/sdd
lvcreate -L 150G --name /u02 volgroup01
-L 100G --name /u03/ volgorup02

i ran a mkfs.ext3 on all the volgroups
mount /dev/volgroup01/u02
mount /dev/volgroup02/u03
---------------------------------
did i miss a step thats preventing the df command from returing the correct information ???

Use lvscan and use those device nodes. Check for a file system with "file -s" as root.

I don't know if this is the problem, but all the lvcreates I've seen eg https://www.redhat.com/magazine/009jul05/features/lvm2/ specify the logvol name as just a string, without any '/'s.
Maybe that's what's confusing it?

Like this:
sudo file -s /dev/VolGroup02/u03

That will tell you if there is a filesystem, or a partition table, etc.

the sudo command return this

/dev/VolGroup02/u03: symbolic link to `/dev/mapper/VolGroup02-u03'

having never done this before, do i need to recreate the the volgroups..if so could you give me a quick example using the one of the volgroups that i specified ??

What's the output from
Code:
/bin/ls -l /dev/VolGroup*/*
/bin/ls -l /dev/mapper/
/bin/ls -l /dev/dm-*
EDIT: and
Code:
/bin/df
cat /proc/mounts

the lvcreate statement i used was lvcreate -L 100G --name /u03 volgroup02..

are you saying it should be lvcreate -L 110G --name u03 volgroupe02 ?
