vgcreate man page shows wildcard method that doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-03-13 15:18:51 EDT
Observed in RHEL4 0811 ia64
The vgcreate man page (and possibly other related man pages) show
being able to create volume groups with this syntax in the examples:
vgcreate test_vg /dev/sd[k-m]1
However, this does not actually seem to be supported in the tool.
I had to give a ful list of physical devices (a bunch of them).
So consider adjusting the man page or the lvm command. Let me know
if I'm missing something.
That relies on expansion by your shell.
Built-in readline doesn't support it.
I've removed the shell expansion from the man page example.
