Invalid Block Count in VxVM File System

I created a logical volume in VxVM using following command
# vxassist -g <disk_group> make <vol_name> <size>

I tried to create a file system in this logical volume using
# mkfs -F vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/<disk-group>/<vol_name>

When, I entered the command, I got following message

mkesfs 1.41.12 (17-may-2010)
mkfsext2:invalid blocks count -dev/vx/rds/<disk-group>/<vol-name>

Do you we need to specify the block count?
How can we make the system to take default block count?

Thank you
