vgcreate fails Incorrect Metadata area header checksum
I have a HP n40l micro server, running debian, with openmediavault installed as packages.
I have been running fine for a while with the 250Gb internal drive and another 2Tb drive.
LVM is also running fine.
I tried adding an old 250Gb sata drive and couldn't get it to create LVM volumes. Decided it was a duff or incompatible drive, and am now trying to get a Samsung 1Tb drive working, but getting the same errors.
I have tried manually, and through system-config-lvm, and through openmedia vault but the error message is always the same.
Disk show up OK in bios, and I can format it as ext3 without issue.
vgcreate command failed
/sbin/vgcreate -M2 -l 256 -p 256 -s 4m -c n vgtest /dev/sdc1
Incorrect medtadata area header checksum
WARNING: DOS-compatible mode is deprecated. It's strongly recommended to
switch off the mode (command 'c') and change display units to
sectors (command 'u').
Command (m for help): dsisk -l /dev/sdc
No partition is defined yet!
Doesn't list the physical volume, only my previous one.
Which is strange, as earlier I did at least have 2 physical volumes.
I have messed around in BIOS with Sata settings and that hasn't made any difference?
Done a debian update and that didn't make any difference.
Where can I get further info of what issue is? Nothing in /var/log/messages
