lvm and vgextend
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have just bought a new disc to replace one which seems to have lots of
errors on it.
In order to bring it into service I have temporarily wired it in as /dev/hdb
I have partitioned the disk and I have "pvcreate"d /dev/hdb3
my plan was to vgextend the volume group currently on /dev/hda3 into
/dev/hdb3, then pvmove /dev/hda3 to move everything to the other drive and
then vgreduce to get rid of /dev/hda3.
Once all that was complete I was going to shutdown the machine and move
/dev/hdb into the /dev/hda position.
Unfortunately - the vgextend doesn't work - it gives an error - thus:-
kanger:/home/alan# vgextend vg1 /dev/hdb3
vgextend -- INFO: maximum logical volume size is 2 Terabyte
vgextend -- ERROR: no physical volumes usable to extend volume group "vg1"
What an I doing wrong?
