LVM pvcreate "Device not found" error


Hi,

I am new to Linux.I am trying to create LVM volume group.
root@localhost ~# pvcreate /dev/hda5
Device /dev/hda5 not found.

I am getting Device not found error.
Can any one help me how to create a volume group on partitions and why "Device not found" error is coming.

Thanks,
susmitha

check whether /dev/hda5 is existing or not...check your existing partition.Did you complete all the steps before that pvcreation .Check this page ...a good LVM configuration tutorial (last part of the page).

hi,

It is working fine after rebooting the machine after creating the partitions.
Can I use LVM tools on EVMS volumes?

thanks,
susmitha
